George Ferko is an impassioned leader who seeks to deliver value and inspire innovation regardless his audience. His recent efforts have been focused on developing strong sales and leadership skills by working in sales, recruiting, and sales management. George Ferko currently works with PayPal in the greater Philadelphia area and spends his days driving their continued growth on a highly competitive floor of all-star sales people. He built his skills in sales, management, and leadership by running a sales office for Vector Marketing where he recruited new sales representatives with no prior experience, trained them, and coached them to build large client lists, serve those clients, and drive profits in a highly efficient manner. He has spent large amounts of time developing expertise in the field of recruiting and has demonstrated ability in building teams designed for mass marketing as well as smaller teams of highly specialized individuals with high level purpose.

In the previous years leading up to the beginning of his career in sales George Ferko worked as an engineer conducting scientific research developing the next generation transparent armor under government grants. His research involved the study of transparent magnesium aluminate spinel on the atomic level through transmission electron microscopy, focused ion beam milling, electron backscatter diffraction, and atomic probe tomography. As an engineer he developed very strong analytical skills as well as skills in instruction and teaching.

George Ferko is from a small town growing up in the wilderness outside of the small town of Palmerton, PA. He remained there until he was miraculously accepted to Lehigh University where he studied engineering at the recommendation of his parents and instructors from the small town high school he attended. He was fortunate enough to have met and befriended some extraordinarily high quality people at Lehigh that helped shaped his vision for the future and made him think bigger about what he could achieve in life.

He is a driven individual who is constantly concerned with his own growth and development. He enjoys skiing in the winter time and swimming in the summer.
