Otto-LNE-Consulting-2016-08-05 at 12.10.10 PM 2The management team at LNE Consulting has a new addition, Otto Hurtado – and his story is so inspiring, we couldn’t keep it to ourselves. Deciding to leave his home of Venezuela due to the turmoil surrounding him, and being forced to completely start over, was not an easy one, but is proving to be a great one. So who is Otto?

Born in Caracas, Otto was raised in Barquisimeto, Venezuela. Growing up an athlete, playing baseball and soccer, he was always a very competitive person and considered a leader of any team he joined. (Foreshadow?) He told us that when he was younger he knew that he was going to be successful because he reached every goal that he set out to accomplish.

Otto received his Bachelor Degree in Business with a minor in Management from the Universidad Fermin Toro (Venezuela). Prior to starting at LNE Consulting, he was working as a pharmaceutical rep in Eli Lilly for 7 years.

Coworkers described Otto as disciplined, organized and having an admirable work ethic. Our CEO, Julie Edmonds, added that he is always smiling, has a great attitude, does whatever it takes to get the job done and, overall, is ‘an all-around great guy to work with.’ It seems only fitting how Otto answered the question, ‘what separates people who are successful versus unsuccessful at LNE Consulting?’ “There is only one factor – their ATTITUDE.” (Yes, he did accentuate that in his response.)

Otto-LNE-Consulting-2016-08-05 at 12.10.10 PMOtto earned a promotion to Assistant Manager on June 172016 after working his way up the ladder, through his demonstrated success on the job. At LNE Consulting, every senior executive has to prove him or herself first; starting in an entry level position and advancing through their proven performance. And Otto is on his way up. He explained that the best part of his job, and this business model, is that he creates his own destiny and is responsible for his own success.

Who’s Otto? A husband, a son, a leader and a new daddy! With the addition of his first child, born only a few weeks ago, Otto’s goals are clearer than ever. Besides reaching a senior level position where he will be able to provide for his family and have a lifestyle of freedom, he first wants to purchase a home for his mom. Assistant Management is only a small rung in your ladder to success Otto, and we can’t wait to see how far you will go!
