Built for YOUR Success…
Derek DeMeo - CEO / Founder
Derek first entered the Ecommerce space selling software. Introduced to all of the major selling channels, he decided to branch out on his own in 2016. After achieving 9-figure sales with his online sales, he identified the need for better virtual assistants among Ecommerce sellers – thus VA Relief!
Since utilizing his own virtual assistants, he’s been able to enjoy much more of his life outside work where he is a husband and father to four young kids.
Ever the individual, though they are generally pitted against each other, he considers himself both a skier AND a snowboarder. Derek is also an avid golfer (we suggested that he take his photo with his Hole-in-One plaque, but alas he declined). As a serial entrepreneur he loves to travel and experience the world on his hunt for the next big idea.

Our resident expert on gadgets, Priyansh is also our source for new technology, and preps us for exciting product launches. He is a husband and father to a little girl who keeps him on his toes. He enjoys a good beach vacation and spending time with his family.
Though he’s done the trip many a time, he prefers not to visit New York in the winter. Those of us that live here tend to agree.
