Dennis Vacca died this weekend - cancer. Only 57.
Truly a complex color, Dennis will be missed by his C2 partners. Smart, loyal, often challenging, sexy - he was the consummate salesman who looked out for the best interest of his clients.
He talked about our stores being Best in Class, and I think he strived to be that way himself in his approach to work.
I was with some of my C2 partners on Sunday morning when we learned of his passing. While not a surprise, it did happen too soon.
We were gathered together for some brainstorming work pertaining to marketing - and Dennis was supposed to be part of that process. Instead we spent a few hours processing our friend Dennis and what he meant to us. I was lucky to have the opportunity to do that with my C2 group, since I won't be able to make his wake or service. Sometimes living on the west coast can kinda suck when things often happen back east.
Dennis definitely had it going on.
