Brian Sullivan – Board Member / Director
Wilson X. Bezerra – Founder / Inventor / Board Member
An industry master with over 35 years of successful experience running a personal business, Wilson Berzerra has demonstrated capacity in understanding what business will thrive and which one will fail. He is a certified sales professional, and an IRS Enrolled Agent, with track records of integrity and ingenuity in service delivery. Starting his career journey at ACS Inc., Totowa, in 1986 as an IRS Enrolled Agent, Wilson mastered the professional accounting principles, theory, and practices with which he can analyze and interpret accounting books, records, or systems, before transferring that knowledge into business and corporate financial management.
Wilson is a trained Information Technology Engineer with a certification as a Microsoft Systems Engineer and a RUTGERS Accounting Graduate. He is an astute project manager with an eye for details and firsthand experience in leading all stages of system development efforts, including requirements definition, design, architecture, testing, and support. He is an award-winning original inventor of the Motion Transfer Mechanism – the first-ever device that converts up and down motion into a circular motion, that has reportedly helped so many physically challenged individuals or people with physical impairments get their grooves back.
Wilson Bezerra is also a Federal Law Enforcement training expert, a Deal Flow speaker for the state of New Jersey, the Senate and General Assembly AWARD winner, and he also won the 2011 UWP mechanical engineering awards. For Wilson, who has filed a patent in 42 countries, the MTM is going to be the next big deal across the world. Therefore, deciding to invest in it will keep your investment on the billionaire’s radar in the new decade and beyond.
