Inspired at an early age by American Superbikers, The Fall Guy and The Dukes of Hazzard, Stone Nanini believed it was obvious that he would become adrenaline addicted.
“It was lucky for me that I grew up on a thousand-acre cattle ranch in the mountains of Wyoming. Whether riding a snowmobile to get on the school bus, stunting a quad that definitely wasn’t made to be stunted, or turning lap after lap on the MX track that I carved out with our bulldozer when I was 12, powersports was life. To a great degree, it directed my career path.”
Stone spent time working in dealerships and as an outside sales/marketing rep for about a decade.
Beginning in 2008, he joined a software start-up in sales as hire number 1 and wore many hats along the way. He played a key role in growing the company from nearly nothing, to a presence in 25 countries on 5 continents, and had clients ranging from the Department of Defense, Dallas Cowboys, NYSE, LinkedIn, Facebook and thousands more.
The idea to return to the powersports industry was always in the back of his mind, but he admits it took him longer than expected.
“During my time in software sales, I had amazing experiences. I was living (and of course riding motorcycles) for almost a decade in Chile and Colombia. I was learning skills and technology that challenged me along the way. I generated a lot of business and ultimately discovered that in life, the best way to assure success is to make other people’s needs the priority.”
“About a year ago, I reached out to Jan for some help in my career search and we immediately hit it off. Being away from the industry makes it hard to get a foothold again, so when Jan’s firm experienced some major growing pains in the last year, we both realized I could potentially make an impact on her team. It sounds cliché, but it’s true, and working as a recruiter is the epitome of this philosophy and working for Jan, both an honor and responsibility that I hold in the highest of regard.”
“I look forward to working with ACTION Recruiting’s candidates, clients and team and in making a positive impact along the way. Wave the green flag and let’s get this show on the road!”
