What’s the best part of your job?

Interaction with people and all the innovation I see year after year.

What inspires your leadership approach?

My peers that I have had the privilege of working with for the past 35-plus years. I have tried to take a little from all of them and utilize their strengths in my everyday life.

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

The fantastic partnerships I have built over the years. There are many knowledgeable, experienced people in our industry, but if you are very lucky, there are a few that help you build your business as if they worked at the desk next to you, and for that I will always be grateful.
