What’s the most rewarding aspect of your job?
Teaching. When asked by many how to close down a negotiation, resolve an issue or address a concern, it’s rewarding to me to even be asked for my guidance, but more important, it’s rewarding to see/read how they accomplished the end goal by taking my advice.
What inspires your leadership approach?
I’ve been fortunate in my roles over the years and it’s all about passing onto the next generation the approach to take. I always strongly suggest building relationships by communicating on the phone or [in-person] and then follow up in writing.
What do you value most about being a part of the grocery business?
Being part of an industry that helps keep America fed all year long, and especially in times of crisis, it becomes more rewarding than ever.
