Giedrius Mockunas

Business Operations

Hi, I'm Giedrius and I am a full time business operations specialist at Pinnacle Dental Group. I am grateful to be a  part of a wonderful and caring dental team. I have been in business operations and management since 2010. I finished my Bachelor of Science degree in 2010, as well as Master's in Business Administration from Lewis University in 2014. Since then, I have worked for organizations such as Deloitte, State of California, and Robert Bosch.

My favorite thing about being in business operations is that every part of business operations, whether it is marketing, accounting, or administration is always changing and a business must adopt these changes in order to move forward.

In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family;  traveling, as well as playing sports, such as basketball.
