When I’m not at work:
I’m usually doing some form of physical activity like running, golfing or playing other sports. If I’m not doing that, I’m with family – my wife and my kids. Actually, it’s usually the other way around. That is, family’s first and then whenever I can fit in a run or a round of golf, I do. If I could run every day, I would as I’ve been running since I was sixteen years old.
Best advice I ever received:
I really can’t say there’s one piece of advice that stands out because I’ve tried to combine the best anecdotes and stories from people I’ve learned from over the years. For example, my first boss believed any piece of business or client, no matter the size, could be a good piece of business if they knew where they wanted to go or that they needed help getting there. Others have told me the best way to manage is to find good people, let them do what they do best, and don’t get in their way.
If I weren’t doing this:
I love volunteering and have been very involved in a lot of service organizations, so I would enjoy working with a non-profit. I’d also love to coach kids’ sports – maybe a middle school or high school track or cross country team. They’re not big dreams, but both of those areas are close to my heart and very important to me.
To me, Positively Engaging Marketing means:
That everything we do as a company involves engaging people in ways that are going to make them, including their products, services, and organizations, better. In a way, this also speaks to how we treat each other internally and what we’re looking to achieve from an outcome standpoint. It’s often easy to overlook the importance of engagement. It’s not just getting someone to react or do something, it’s getting them to do something better.
