Fostering Relationships, Forecasting Financials with Brandon Metcalf from Place Technology
At 19, Brandon Metcalf was a bank teller in Florida. He one day found himself talking to the regional Executive VP, and she asked what he wanted to do. “I want your job eventually,” he said. “What do I need to do to get there?” She gave him some goals, and gradually he met them. Two years later, he was managing a bank, and soon thereafter, he was opening a new branch. The chief lesson he learned throughout this climb was the importance of relationship building. This lesson would eventually lead him to start several companies, including his current startup, Place Technology, which offers financial forecasting software to help companies produce the info they need to grow and thrive.
