Michael A Salvaggio (CEO) has been a leader in the internet marketing and development industry since 2000. In 2002, he organized and wrote a FICO credit score repair eBook that quickly sold over 50,000 copies and transitioned into his next endeavor, Net Direct, a global fulfillment consulting firm. While operating Net Direct out of his home and a nearby office, Salvaggio was recruited to turnaround Caiman and DVD Legacy, two of the biggest marketplace traders on Amazon.com and many different domestic and international online marketplaces.
