As a past President of John Maxwell Leadership Foundation he has sat in the big chair in Higher Education, Medical Foundations, and multinational groups. He has a simple goal: build hard working, healthy, and fun organizations where people love to serve and give their best. He is known for his unrelenting commitment to clarifying purpose, empowering employees, and acknowledging contributions.
