MOST INFLUENTIAL PERSONS:
"My father. He taught me a great work ethic at a very early age. He taught me about character and being a man of your word, and follow-through and respect. He really taught me how to be a gentleman. He instilled all of the qualities necessary for success in any part of life."
LAST BOOK READ:
"The Starfish and the Spider, by Rod Beckstrom. It’s about leaderless organizations. If you cut the head off a spider, it dies; whereas a starfish, if you cut off an arm, it will grow back."
WORDS THAT DESCRIBE ME:
WHERE MY FIELD/INDUSTRY IS HEADED:
"Many economists say that contingent labor is the future of growing businesses, that it’s become less of a temporary need and more of a strategic initiative."
FAVORITE TECHNOLOGICAL GADGET:
"GPS. Seriously, I try to avoid being too accessible. My two vice-presidents have BlackBerries and they’re glued to them constantly."
"Key West, Florida. It’s just another world down there -- far, far from the suits and ties. Great food, great culture, great sunsets."
"Fly-fishing and golf."
MY HIDDEN TALENT:
"The ability to be patient from time to time."
HOW I WANT TO BE REMEMBERED:
"As a great father."
