Alex Anaya, Aeutus Marketing COO, also recently left a banking career at M&I Bank after working there over six years. Anaya states “One of the numerous benefits of working for M&I bank of Arizona was that I was able to meet many business owners, however I soon learned that the services that I provided wasn’t enough to help them become more profitable. Many of them knew about their particular industry, however most of them did not know how to properly market themselves and target a certain niche.” Anaya continued “I would also get many Hispanic business owners approaching me because many of them only spoke Spanish and did not have a clear understanding on how to start a business in the U.S.” Working for a very conservative bank, he was limited to the knowledge that he could share and started getting requests from some of these clients to assist them with such things as helping them with the basics to get a business started and for Marketing and Advertising assistance. In 2009, he created Anaya Consulting Group to assist people with starting business entities as well as with Marketing and Social Media support.
Christopher Castillo and Alex Anaya both understand the importance of reaching out to the public in order to increase market share, as that is always the goal for all financial institutions. Aeutus Marketing will focus on assisting small and medium size business and currently has a small staff. One of the primary focuses of Aeutus Marketing is being an advocate to assisting Latino owned businesses.
Anaya comes from a family of entrepreneurs who have migrated to the U.S. to live the American dream of running their own enterprises. Christopher Castillo also has a background in assisting Hispanic owned businesses. Castillo previously worked as a Technical Assistant at the Univeristy of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) for nearly four years in a bilingual entrepreneurial course geared toward helping people create business plans regardless of their English proficiency. He is also a founding board member of Milwaukee’s Latino Entrepreneurial Network (LEN) that started in 2005 with nine members and now has over 200. He helped LEN become nationally recognized, and awarded, by the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce for the past two years.
Castillo has a long history of helping business owners with business plan creation and with his passion, Marketing. In 2006, he was the United States Congress Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition recipient, in recognition of outstanding and invaluable services to the community. He was also the 2009 Multicultural Entrepreneurial Institute (MEI) Volunteer of the Year Award recipient as well as the Wisconsin 2008 Small Business Administration (SBA) – Minority Business Champion, Nominee and Runner-up. In 2006 he recieved the Community Service Award for the dedication, commitment and service to entrepreneurs and business owners of the Greater Milwaukee Area, presented by El Centro Empresarial and UWM.
