From the Bronx NY, Graduated from West Virginia University Major in Business Administration minor in Sports Communication. Been running a business for 8 years. My favorite part of the business is being a contributing factor to someone's personal & professional development. My number 1 motivation is to leave a legacy. Creating generational wealth and making an impact on my culture & community. Loves everything sports; talking, playing & attending sporting events. A small thing that makes my day better is seeing a picture of my daughter. A hobby of mine is riding my bike throughout NYC. My favorite quote "A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way"
Hi. I’m Mark Pe. I’m a Managing Partner at Crosstown Solutions, and I live in New York City. As a young man with many career dreams, I started working from a young age in the hospitality industry with jobs that included bartending, serving tables, bar-backing, bussing tables and even working in hotels.
“Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work, but when combined, it’s a scary scenario.”
I couldn’t agree more with the quote mentioned above. Life introduced me to the marketing industry, and I haven’t looked back. I have been in this industry for two years. I love that our company allows me to provide opportunities daily and work with people who have good intentions and inspire others to be great. I enjoy working with well-known businesses across industries and helping my clients reach their products and services to their target audience.
I have several personal and professional goals that I want to achieve in the next few years. I want to continue teaching others how to run a business as effectively as mine. I also want to promote seven people to management roles this year. On the personal front, I look forward to getting engaged within the next few months and going on family vacations with my kids and family. I am working towards building a national organization across 30 cities. I also want to create a non-profit organization in the neighborhood I grew up in to help educate low-income families on financial literacy and equip the youth with the proper tools to succeed.
Looking ahead, I want to retire my mom who’s worked so hard all her life, so I want to be able to pay it forward. I see myself being able to consult for over 30 offices, while being happily married, My kids and my family motivate me to keep working hard. I have two little boys who depend on me to provide them with the future that I didn’t have growing up.
One book that I want to read is E- myth by Michael E. Gerber. If time and money weren’t an issue, I’d travel and buy and flip houses.
I hope my continued mentorship, my drive, and my passion never change. I derive great strength from relationship-building and leading by example.
I believe the small things in life inspire you to do great things. I wake up with gratitude, take my oldest to school, wake up an hour earlier than supposed to spend time with my newborn and I wake up to an opportunity to build something for my future. I meditate twice a day; it helps me wind down and relax. Thanksgiving Day is my favorite time of the year as I get to self-reflect on what I’m grateful for and give back.
Hi. I’m Johsa Origenes. I’m from Melbourne Australia. I did my studies at Deakin University in Australia. After graduating with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Psychology, I ventured out to the United States and started working. I have been working with Crosstown Solutions for the past four years. In this tenure, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the company and empowering others through teaching everything I’ve learned in my career.
“The only thing to fear is fear itself.” I believe fear holds people back. I like to face my challenges and take them head-on instead of running away from them. Gaining absolute financial freedom and being able to give back to my family is my biggest motivation for working hard. I believe my strengths comprise empathy and creative problem-solving skills. I’d love to work on overthinking and my procrastination habits.
If sleep weren’t a thing, I’d love to invest time and money in traveling to developing countries. In 5 years, I see myself on a boat in Thailand with my young family while my bank accounts fill with residual income.

Hi, I'm Ilana Perez. I am hailing from South America & grew up in Jamaica, Queens where there were little to no opportunities at that time. I had to overcome many battles to get to where I am today. Currently I am a top admin here at Crosstown. I can say that being on such an amazing team has changed my life for the better.
There are so many opportunities here to grasp you can’t just pick one !
I am so happy to have given the company a chance and I have gotten so much energy and gratitude in return as much as I have put out and more !
My greatest advice would be; Don’t ever give up no matter what life throws at you. You never know who will be on the other line or who may walk into your life and change it forever !
As I move into mentorship rapidly I hope to one day be able to give others the same opportunity that was presented to me in order to continue to change lives.
