Joe became the COO of Astor and Black and helped develop the company to where it was eventually sold in 2012 for $42 million. When he decided to leave Astor and Black, he left with a handful of clients, the majority of them being professional athletes. Thinking of way to capitalize on this existing relationship Joe decided to start his own company and Bello Verde was born. Joe has since been taking the custom clothing industry by storm. Joe has since he made a few key hires and Bello Verde has been growing rapidly.
