In Their Own Words

What are your professional drivers?

Working with the talented Network team, independent business owners and their teams, and world class suppliers to provide locally based customer solutions that improve lives.

Share a professional accomplishment of which you are particularly proud.

I’m most proud of the Network Sales and Marketing Team we’ve built. This team provides superior industry-leading value to our customers, Member Distributors, and suppliers.  And throughout our more than 10 years together, we continue striving to be “better and smarter” every day.

Who are you outside of work?

When I’m not “working”, I love to travel with my wife, friends, and family to experience the wonders and people of the world.  Biking and hiking are my individual passions and I’d mark having climbed Mt Kilimanjaro (with friends) as my proudest individual accomplishment. What’s crazy is that along the way, I’m always thinking of ways Network, and I, can better at serve our constituents.
