Change the world by doing business better.
Michelle Grunberg, visionary of iconnectu’s mission to fill the needs of the world with corporate resources, worked for Fortune 100 companies including Walt Disney World, Marriott and Paychex. After reaching the pinnacle of her career in hospitality, Grunberg set her sights on sales. Paychex Corporation, the leading Sales Training company in the world, provided the expertise, the dedication to excellence and the ability to serve small businesses and the community. During her three-year tenure at Paychex, Grunberg achieved double-digit growth using grass roots sales techniques and face-to-face service. She served in both the Manatee Chamber of Commerce as a member of the Better Business Council for four years and attended Manatee Leadership in 2008. The Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance was growing rapidly, and Michelle served in a leadership role on both the Public Relations Committee and the Board of Directors for one year. Finally, and most rewarding, Grunberg was on the Board of Directors for Community Haven for Adult and Children with Disabilities for five years, serving as Board Chairwoman for two of those years. Taking special care of the special needs community was incredibly rewarding and Michelle loved to “rock the babies” before every meeting.
These experiences led Grunberg to build iconnectu in 2009 and utilize her training, talent, leadership and dedication to excellence to serve all business owners she met. The firm quickly grew as an extension of the community’s need to find more business, connect to the very best solution, and grow organically. In 2011 the firm expanded its imprint to Tampa, then Tallahassee, FL and this quickly launched them into a national forum. Presently, iconnectu serves clients as far west as Phoenix, AZ, and as far north as St. Louis, MO. Grunberg looks forward to growing each of these markets and introducing all three of iconnectu’s unique product models. Her vision of creating a world free from hunger, oppression, and greed guides all she does including the future formation of iconnectu Foundation that will connect the corporate excess to the non-profit needs around the globe. Grunberg’s daughter, Natalie Fabbiani, is slated to serve in that Foundation and the legacy will continue.
