Cullen Mariacher was raised in a small town outside of Buffalo, N.Y., and permanently migrated to Central Florida after graduating high school. At age 19, he founded his first company with $200. By the time he turned 23, it grew to a multi-million dollar organization dedicated to the Mazda automotive platform (ref. FlyingMazda.com).
In 2007, Mariacher chose to follow his instinctive passion for creativity, innovation, and design by establishing JATO (ref. GoJATO.com). The experienced JATO team works closely with lower- to middle-market organizations to provide creative business development solutions
In addition to the current company development, he continues to learn and expand his knowledge. He enjoys taking an active role within the professional business community of Central Florida and often participates in local business roundtable meetings and events at the Rollins College Center for Advanced Entrepreneurship. “When you have a number of business professionals in one location, sharing their experiences, it creates a powerful learning environment. I would definitely recommend all business owners to get involved in their local business community.”
Those who know Mariacher can tell you he has a strong entrepreneurial mindset. He currently has a number of business projects in development, and is always open to new business ventures. “I strive for professional growth and a greater understanding of business knowledge. One day, I would ultimately love to be in the venture capital space. Regardless of the future, our focus is on today.”
Mariacher and the JATO team believe that community outreach and protecting the environment are important aspects of any successful business. “We believe that true success is only achieved when you’ve improved the world around you.”
