(read bio)
Mr. Hodjat was awarded his Bachelors degree in marketing and design from American Intercontinental University. Prior to starting his business in the mold industry, Mr. Hodjat was the V.P. of Sales and Marketing at one of the top general contracting firms in Southern California which specialized in government historic renovations and Wealth Management Trust Fund accounts. Overseeing multiple jobs with the Historic Core of Downtown Los Angeles, Mr. Hodjat came across numerous historic buildings that contained extensive mold and moisture damage. Through his experience of dealing with such jobs, Mr. Hodjat dedicated himself to mold and branched off from construction to the mold industry 4 years ago. Mr. Hodjat started his company, BioPro, in 2006 and generated close to 3 quarters of a million dollars in sales in his first year. He dedicates his success to the mentorship provided to him by Ed Malone and Seth Norman of the National Association of Mold Professionals, and to his marketing and design degree obtained some years ago. Mr. Hodjat has been able to successfully utilize his marketing background to build an awareness of his company’s brand throughout the Southern California market. Mr. Hodjat, along with the help of NAMP, has also created proprietary project and content management software for the mold industry which streamlines operations and management through an online system that can be accessed virtually anywhere there is internet access. This software proved so successful for BioPro that a version is in the process of being built for sale to other mold inspection and remediation professionals available mid 2008.
