On the fast track: Mongeluzo makes his mark in business--and service
Rowan University's first Distinguished Young Alumnus awardee, Anthony Mongeluzo, moves at warp speed. It serves him well.
Nine years ago, the Philadelphia native earned his B.S. in business administration with a specialization in management information systems with magna cum laude honors.
He didn't sit still during his college years, and he hasn't sat still since.
Mongeluzo, now of Marlton, founded The Pro Computer Service LLC in 2000 while still a student. The Marlton-headquartered firm provides IT services for businesses, government entities and home offices. From a single-person operation, he has grown his business to 20 employees; four offices in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware; and more than $6 million in sales. Additionally, he has acquired three companies since 2005.
His work has attracted a lot of attention. He's a regular technology expert on Fox 29, where he discusses such topics as security issues, virus warnings and new technology, and he's often used as a media source for broadcast, print and digital media such as Fox News, ABC, MSN, MSNBC, CNN and the Courier-Post.
As he built his business, Mongeluzo garnered numerous awards, including many from organizations that recognize the fastest-growing businesses in the region: the Philadelphia Business Journal's South Jersey 25 (four years, qualifying for the Hall of Fame) as well as the Entrepreneurs' Forum of Greater Philadelphia, the Philadelphia Business Journal and the Wharton Small Business Development Center's Philly 100 (four years, becoming the youngest Hall of Fame Member at age 29). He won awards from both those programs in 2010 as CEO of two different companies in two different industries.
NJBIZ placed him on its Forty Under 40 list in 2009, and the Burlington County Chamber of Commerce recognized him with New Voice of Business and Business of the Year honors in 2008 and 2010, respectively. Among his many other regional and national accolades, SmartCEO honored him with the Future 50 Award and the CEO Circle of Excellence Award in 2010 and 2011, respectively. His firm made Inc.'s Inc. 5000 list for three consecutive years.
Though his business has been highly successful, Mongeluzo defines himself by much more, including his relationship to his alma mater.
He has served as president of the Rowan University Rohrer College of Business Alumni Board, of which he has been a member since 2002, and is a member of the board of the Entrepreneurs Forum of South New Jersey. Through those entities, he has helped mentor students and young entrepreneurs as well as set policies. Mongeluzo was a sponsor of Rowan's Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship's first Intellectual Property Summit in 2010 and the FIRST Lego League-First State Qualifier in 2009 and 2010. A personal milestone was being selected before he turned 30 to be Rowan's keynote Convocation speaker in 2010.
Among many other organizations, Mongeluzo is a member of the Burlington County Chamber of Commerce and the New Jersey Technology Council. Additionally, he is on the YMCA Governance Board in Burlington and Camden counties and the Starting Point Foundation in Westmont. He is active with the YMCA's Strong Kids campaign and more, and he created the Young Entrepreneur of the Delaware Valley Awards.
