It’s the largest city.

He is the recipient of the Meritorious Service Medal, Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal.

He graduated from the Command Leadership Course, Navy Senior Enlisted Academy, holds an A.S. from Excelsior College, a B.A. in Natural Sciences and Mathematics from Thomas Edison State University, and is currently completing his M.B.A with Herzing University.
Enrique started Triad Leadership Group in 2018 with the goal of providing leadership, management, and career development consulting. Their motto is taking first-time and struggling leaders from ‘SucKcess to Success’ through coaching, assessments, trainings and mentorship.
Enrique attended our JULO Strategy’s CEO Mindset™ course for one simple reason, “Learn what I need to know to make my business successful.” Completing Phase I made him realize he was a worker, not a CEO, and helping him learn to be clearer on his processes and procedures, he was able to delegate more and have better clarity, vision, and purpose. “It is hard to go somewhere when you are not clear where you are going and why. The ‘Why’ is clear now.”
He continued to Phase II and grew exponentially, seeing immediate results from everything he had been taught. “I was able to reprogram my mind to see my company from a CEO perspective and go from working in my business to working ON my business.”
JULO loves seeing everything you have accomplished, Enrique, and we look forward to seeing you and your business succeed!
