I started dating my wife 48 years ago as a couple of 16 yr olds. The past 43 Years we have been married. We have two sons, Cole 34 and Reed 30, and two grand children Ridge 12 and Swayze 11.
After over 18+ years in corporate America with AT&T, Hartford Insurance, Bryan Foods-a division of Sara Lee where I was VP Operations,
Sales, and Marketing shelf stable and International division. From there I turned my sites to entrepreneurship. I spent the last 25 + years as an Owner, Managing Member, minority owner, and operator in the Entrepreneurial space across several industries beginning with Haas Outdoors, Inc owner Mossy Oak brand as EVP/CSO, as an owner of 5 Remax offices; Motto Mortgage; Summit Property Management; Oxford Appliance Repair; 3 Real Estate Investment companies; and my own consulting coaching firm focused on consulting in areas of Operations, Sales and Marketing strategies that fit the staff and the entity.I have worked with many fortune 500companies, non-profits, and small businesses in over 60 countries from manufacturing, printing, operations, marketing, supply chain and logistics
My strengths are sales, marketing and operations.I am driven by the success of our associates, regardless of the company. Each and every day I focus on how we can do it better so they can benefit the most.
The key to success is placing the value on the single most important resource we have, PEOPLE, they truly make the difference. My belief in people came from my Dad, he believed there is greatness in all people. They sometimes need help getting out of their own way.
