Hi, my name is Frank Chalupa, I am the President and co-founder of Amata, I started the company with my business partner Ron, over 13 years ago!
I am also what you call a true “Chicago Boy”, born and raised on the south side, graduate of U of I Chicago, and still live in the city, bottom line………..“Chicago is my kind of town”, and yes I can listen to Sinatra all day!
For over 30 years I sold print & marketing in Fortune 500 Companies, all in Chicago. I then changed careers and for the next 7 years sold outsourcing services for two of the largest companies in the industry, again from Chicago. This gave me the expertise and knowledge about how to provide true customer service second to none.
My partner and I were both tired of the Fortune 500 arena and knew there was a niche in “Executive Suites“, the rest is history. Over the last 13+ years we have grown from one center and 50 offices to six centers with over 350 offices. I am very proud to say that we are currently the largest privately owned and managed office provider / real estate broker in the city and are enjoying every minute of it!!!!
On a personal note, I married my “soul-mate” wife, Beth and we have two dogs, Pebbles and Barnie. She loves to play poker, entertain and take the dogs for long walks; I love fast cars, a good cigar and a great bourbon next to it sitting on the deck.
