Victorio Pellicano

Victorio, “Vic” Pellicano is the Founder & CEO of Verenia, a Chicago area software company that’s been nothing short of a rocket ride. Verenia has experienced 100% growth in four consecutive years and maintains a position as the highest-rated CPQ (Configure, Price, Quote) software on the market.

Against all odds, Vic has walked a colorpath to successful entrepreneurship.  The son of a truck driver and stay-at-home mom, Vic was the first in his family to attend college.

Prior to starting Verenia, he attended Loyola’s School of Law and quickly learned that practicing law was not for him.  He also made a previous attempt with entrepreneurship on a venture called Closzip.  You won’t, however, find this product on any store shelves. Later, the road would take him to forging a successful career in manufacturing leadership. Through it all, Vic has maintained a strong worth ethic thanks to his south side roots, and continues to seek out ways to grow Verenia’s footprint.

Despite losing both parents at an early age, Vic has maintained a self-starter outlook and is determined to spreading a positive perspective on the challenges of life and business.
