Vendita Welcomes Brad Petrus to Tampa

December 12, 2017

Relocating from Toledo, Ohio to Tampa is surely a leap, but it’s one that Vendita’s Chief Operating Officer, Brad Petrus, is excited to make. The soon to be Tampa resident obtained his Bachelors of Business Administration and Masters of Business Administration in Executive Management from The University of Toledo.

As Vendita’s Chief Operating Officer, he is responsible for leading Vendita’s business operations as well as developing and evangelizing Vendita’s mission and strategy throughout the organization.

Brad is certainly no stranger to Vendita, as he joined the company in 2009 to establish the company’s Oracle position. He has dedicated his time to developing and enhancing the strategic direction for Vendita’s Licensing and Product Development lines of business, and nurturing relationships within the Oracle partner community by assisting customers across financial, retail, manufacturing, public sector, and high technology industries

Prior to his current role, Brad worked as Vendita’s Vice President of License Management, Sales Manager, and Director of Operations, establishing Vendita as a valued IBM Partner and the primary supplier for Oracle products to Fortune 500 companies.

After working for Vendita for the past 8 years, Brad considers himself extremely dedicated to the company he helped build and is very proud of the growth he’s been able to help facilitate. He is excited to expand on the strong foundation for which Vendita currents sits.

While he hasn’t made the move yet, Brad is greatly looking forward to becoming socially involved in the local community and enjoying all that Tampa Bay has to offer. He is especially looking forward to the opportunity he will have to empower, lead, and contribute to the thriving business community in Tampa.
