Office Manager

Mario joined John Moran Auctioneers in 2019.

In his role of Office Manager, Mario oversees the invaluable work of the Customer Service team and is responsible for overseeing auction day and post-auction operations.

Having honed his project management and communication skills at international companies like Pinkberry, Sky Zone and Starbucks, Mario is happy to put those skills to good use at Moran’s. His extensive background in building, managing and deploying large corporate retail stores/branches makes him ideally suited for the fast pace of the auction industry.

Mario studied music at the California Institute of the Arts and pursued music professionally for more than a decade. Equally adept on guitar and bass, he still enjoys playing in his off-hours. However, it’s in the kitchen that Mario’s true talents can be found – recreating a restaurant favorite, reconstructing a family classic or just creating something new, he’s always looking for a challenge.
