What’s the best part of your job?
The best part of the job is the excitement of a client brand-new to retail seeing their products on shelf.

What inspires your leadership approach?
Simply the lessons learned all along the way. Be humble, admit when you make a mistake and be kind. Always be flexible to learn something new or a new way to do something old—all learned from my parents, friends and work colleagues along the way.

What do you cherish most about being a part of the industry?
I cherish most the friends I have met over the past 40 years. Many from the start of my career to those I have worked for and with along the way.
