Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
After a distinguished high school career in southeastern Massachusetts, including four years as president of his class, Derek attended the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. There, he helped a nonprofit organization bring scholarships to Philadelphia high schools, analyzed pricing strategies in the auto industry, and helped bring a new product to a first place finish at a design fair, before receiving a bachelor's degree in marketing.
Since then, as part of the Ford Motor Company's dealer organization, Derek became master certified with Ford, both for personal vehicles as well as the commercial lineup, demonstrating comprehensive knowledge of Ford's vehicles and the programs which support them. He also spent this time as a certified Sync Specialist, charged with demonstrating and explaining Ford's infotainment technologies to prospective customers and new owners.
