What’s the best part of your job?

The variety of work that comes from both the strategic planning and execution of a business and the daily challenges that are part of a growing enterprise. Each day brings a new set of opportunities, obstacles and chances to learn.  

What inspires your leadership approach?

I have been fortunate to be inspired and mentored by a number of great leaders, starting with my parents, followed by teachers; coaches; my wife, Kim; pastors; co-workers; and bosses. One of the common threads I have experienced, which in turn inspires me, is how these people made it their goal to invest their time into me, my ideas and development. 

What do you cherish most about being a part of the industry?

The people. The passion, professionalism and energy that make up the men and women who work in this business are special. I am blessed to call many of them friends as well.
