I believe that results – and people – matter
Growing up, my family life was centered around Uniroyal Chemical, Inc. The experiences of living in a manufacturing town had a profound impact on my beliefs of what it means to be part of an organization.
I grew up listening to a whistle signaling shift changes for the crews twice daily, being an ex-pat family in Rome, Italy when my Dad was transferred, and witnessing the devastating effects of a hostile takeover bid and leveraged buy-out on both the town and my family.
As organizations grow or decline, they take along the communities that form inside them – and out. I believe that forward movement is paramount for an organization’s long-term survival.
I believe in helping organizations and the people inside them achieve goals and fulfill the promise of their potential.
I bring these beliefs to my work, every day.
