Don Rutt, a successful entrepreneur, has always had an 'itch' to do things differently, to make things better. Upon graduating with a Business degree from the University of Southern Mississippi, he hit the ground running by completing various banking trainee programs and rose rapidly to vice president and bank manager. Don moved to Florida and spent the next 25 years in the auto industry where among other things, he was instrumental in taking a small Lincoln-Mercury business (30-40 cars) to become the largest Lincoln-Mercury dealership in the world. During this time he also became partner and GM of the first wave of Lexus dealerships in America and founded a chain of stores for unique cosmetic repairs to automobiles. Ever the entrepreneur, Don searched for the next business venture after selling his chain of exclusive auto repair stores. He found a unique business in the growing e-market and along with some old friends, decided to form AdzZoo.
"Our main focus is on the end user of our product, the ad client. However, to do this we must create, train, develop and pay our salespeople well," Don explains. "We believe that the timing of AdzZoo could not be better. A new paradigm is occurring before our eyes. The giants of all business were the ones that got ahead of the herd and were waiting for the stampede to come to them. We are ahead of the herd and waiting for the coming stampede."
