Justin G. Preston
Justin began his professional career in the music industry. He soon moved from the performance side of the industry into production and marketing. As one of Denver's top talents, his skills in design, production, and marketing were highly sought after. He built his businesses with consistent growth by skillfully managing clients assets, making new profitable connections, and utilizing those connections to the clients benefit. It wasn't long before he gained the attention of legendary Multi-platinum and Gold producer Mark Berry (Think Carly Simon, Duran Duran, Sting) and the late world-renowned violinist Eugene Fodor. When the great recession hit in 2008, Justin felt it was no longer economical to continue in the music industry, at least until the economy had recovered. However, by then he had moved on to his next venture. He then finished his undergraduate and graduate degrees in business and graduated with honors both times. During his time in academia he found his next calling…helping other businesses and individuals avoid the pitfalls of starting a new business and helping to find them success.
