What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned in your career?

I was taught very early in my career that if you focus on making everyone a valued and appreciated member of the team, that success will follow.

Who have been the biggest mentors in your career?

Mr. (Williard) Hackerman was of course an extraordinary mentor, not just to me but to countless others. We still miss him today. Also my dad, who was a truck driver, taught me to look everyone in the eye and to measure them on their words and action and on nothing else.

What are your hopes for the state or your community this year?

My hope is that we can enter a new era where business, community, nonprofits and government find ways to collaborate in lifting people up with great oppor-tunities.

What do you do to unplug in your free time?

I love spending time with our family. Also love to hike year-round, do some gardening, and mess around in my workshop.
