Shortly after graduating, he worked at Proctor & Gamble in the area of Brand Management. He left P&G to become a partner in a boutique merchandising company, which he helped expand to become the 2nd largest outsourced merchandising force (covering over 95% of all retail outlets across the country by sales volume) in Canada.
Baldo’s full-time career began at the Canadian Organization of Small Business, during which time he also started a part-time business designing, manufacturing and selling home structural products into the Toronto market. Meanwhile, he assisted with managing residential real estate properties.
Adapting to the economic changes, in 1993 Baldo decided to join Bank of Montreal as a Financial Analyst. At the bank, he was enrolled in the executive management training program, rotating into the personal commercial financial services division, where he obtained both personal and commercial lending limits. He then was promoted to managing the Bank’s International Trade Finance Services brand around the world.
Baldo left the bank after 7 years to start his own Management Consulting business through which he did work with the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, HRWorks, and acted as the President for the Canada-Mexico Business Council.
In the early 2000’s he was labeled as Canada’s first master networker and later received an award from TLN Television for one of Canada’s top 6 most distinguished business professionals of the year.
