...
Driven by the passion to create and grow brands and the internal desire to be in an exciting consumer business, Monte purchased Tru Fragrance (then Romane) in 2006. With its 40-year-old history in the fragrance business and sterling reputation for customer service, Monte saw the opportunity to create an environment of innovation and entrepreneurship. Today the company has over 80 brands in the marketplace and serves retailers in over 8,000 outlets nationwide. In addition to his role as CEO of Tru, Monte has been an investor, strategic advisor, board member and principal in several business enterprises across a broadspectrum of products and services for more than a decade.
Monte's growth philosophy is both profound and simple at the same time: build extraordinary product, always be a partner, not an agent, in any business relationship and be transparent and forthcoming around both the pathway of success and the sometimes daunting challenges in bringing the right product to market on trend and on time. His daily mantra is succinct, "We keep our promises and create value for ourpartners."
Prior to joining Tru Fragrance, Monte established himself in the financial industry working at Deloitte as an auditor and management consultant and then as Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the Chicago Stock Exchange. He later served as President of O'Connor Specialists, a proprietary option-trading firm operating on the floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange. Currently, Monte serves on the Board of Directors of Novaspect, a company that provides engineering solutions, control systems, and related technologies across numerous industries. He also serves on the board of MyFootpath, a company that helps students at colleges connect by matching goals, interest and needs with educational opportunities.
Monte earned his Bachelor of Business Administration degree from the University of Notre Dame (Go Irish!) and his Master of Business Management degree from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University (Go Cats!).
