A Sales Junkie in the Making

Born in Brooklyn and raised off of Exit 9 on the New Jersey Turnpike, Peter Hecht had a big personality and knack for sales since 1968. Peter cut his teeth in sales while in high-school— scalping concert tickets & selling concert tees.

Thereafter, you guessed it— Peter was a car salesman! During his gap year before college, you could find him in Union, New Jersey selling cars at Autoland.

After graduating with a bachelor’s degree from Rutgers University, Peter joined the proof-positive sales team at MCI Communications. He worked his way up, paid his dues, and eventually graduated to the telecom big leagues with a global account job at AT&T.

It was then that Peter reconnected with his high-school sweetheart, a court reporter named Staci, and they quickly tied the knot. This marked his introduction to the legal services space… and the rest is Magna history!
