A short bio about Jason Castellani.
Jason was welcomed into this world on October of 1974 in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania by his parents and older brother of 3 years. He spent all his childhood years growing up in his hometown of Maple Shade, New Jersey. After graduating high school in 1993, Jason headed off to Elon University in North Carolina.
After graduation from college with a B.A. in Economics Jason soon gained employment with a regional bank in North Carolina, First Citizens Bank & Trust. Along with his college roommate he moved to Raleigh to enjoy what the small city had to offer in contrast to suburbia. After two years, Jason returned home to New Jersey, reuniting with family and friends again from Maple Shade. After several years of searching for a job that interested him, he was hired by Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. in Montvale, New Jersey as a reporting and analytics specialist. Mercedes-Benz was the most influential employment in shaping his career, leadership skills and understanding of the corporate world. Jason is always appreciative of the mentors, colleagues and friends he worked alongside during those 6 years there. After leaving Mercedes-Benz, he accepted a job with Mercer in Hoboken, New Jersey. At the time, and prior to this trip to Latin America, Jason was living in Hoboken, the home of baseball and Frank Sinatra. Hoboken is a wonderful town with its incredible views of Manhattan, easy access to New York City, many bars and restaurants, and small town feel. After returning from a year long backpacking trip through Latin America in 2010, Jason accepted a position with ATCS, with global headquarters in the NYC/NJ metro area. Over the last several years Jason has become an integral player in the company and is help shape ATCS into a premiere boutique automotive after sales business and IT consulting firm.
Jason’s passions have evolved over the years. After college he focused solely on accelerating his career and financial goals. Now, he looks towards creating experiences, growing his company globally, visiting new environments and unfamiliar cultures, living a compassionate vegan lifestyle and exploring the great outdoors. We are excited to follow Jason’s journey as he brings his travel adventures to us.
