Business Development Manager
Rich Valladao joined MOUNTAIN in 2014 as a Business Development Manager based in Dublin, CA.
In his role as Business Development Manager, Rich’s primary responsibility is to identify, encourage and nourish new business relationships for MOUNTAIN in order to help our clients achieve their goals.
Prior to joining our team and over the course of 14 years, Rich has held increasing responsibilities in the staffing, engineering and telecommunications industry. He also worked for a Silicon Valley start-up company and in the financial services industry.
