Disruptive CEO Nation Podcast with Allison K. Summers
Episode 120 Brian Roland, Rounder and Social Entrepreneur
Brian Roland is a natural entrepreneur who immediately started by building new sales methods by looking for gaps and figuring out to fill them. Following that method, his first clients included the US Army, Walt Disney Company and Oracle.
