Changing Lives Selling Knives

Jul 30, 2021

Michael Arrieta has had exponential success in his relatively short career. As a Cutco sales rep, he was the #1 new sales rep in the company during his first year. He became one of the top college-student sales reps in the history of the company before graduating from the University of Alabama. Michael’s first corporate experience was with Wyse, a company which was purchased by Dell, where he was able to leverage his experience, effort, and results to advance to Chief of Staff in a short period of time. He got onto the radar of legendary Silicon Valley entrepreneur Keith Krach, and eventually moved to a role as Keith’s Chief of Staff in the early days of DocuSign. Michael was truly one of the key players in DocuSign’s meteoric rise to market dominance, and he advanced as far as Global VP before departing from the company recently. He was even named to Forbes “30 Under 30” in 2016. Now, he has started his own holding company, Garden City, for the purpose of buying and transforming service businesses all across the Southeastern U.S., bringing them new culture, improved technology, and increasing opportunities and benefits for their working-class employees. Michael is also the co-Founder of New Story, a non-profit whose mission is to end global homelessness. This guy is an absolute superstar in business and in life.
