Bruno emigrated to the U.S. from Italy as a teenager, where he found himself in a trade school to become a technician for electronics. With his success, and the emergence of new technology, he moved on to fix word processors, worked as a field engineer for WANG and became a Sales Rep for Memorex Telex, before they went out of business at the end of 1996. From ’96-’99, Bruno continued his career as a Sales Rep with other distributors, where he was exposed to the UNIX world. Through this time period, he was introduced to Compaq, where he got his idea to start MRA International as a Compaq reseller in 1999.
