Follow Your Passion for Ultimate Success!
Joao Correia began his successful career racing as a kid in Portugal, and went on to ride professionally. In 1996 he left cycling for college, which led to a career in the fast paced New York City publishing world. Joao’s wanderlust spirit took him on assignments with Hearst on titles such as Esquire Magazine that included working in Prague, Milan, San Francisco and New York. But the passion for the bike was always well rooted with Joao and eventually he became the Associate Publisher of Bicycling Magazine.
With that he started to ride seriously again and eventually lost 60 pounds which led him back to the top echelon of professional cycling as a member of the Cervelo Test Team in a transformation that the New York Times called a remarkable athletic achievement. Joao has also worked for Social Media powerhouse LinkedIn in San Francisco. Joao holds a Political Science and International Business Degree from Fordham University.
Joao is now currently part of two successful businesses; InGamba (view website here.) and CORSO Sports Marketing (website.)
Mark your calendars for our annual holiday party which will be held at the home of Paul Herrerias in Novato on December 9th.
We look forward to seeing you on November 11th at Il Fornaio!
