Building an environment where people thrive seems like a simple idea. A simple shift from a left-brained approach to a right-brain approach can build meaningful relationships built on trust that leads to enthusiasm and personal and professional reward. Using the online management tool, uMap, will create unmistakable cultures, build connected communities and enrich the employee experience.

Through 25 years of executive leadership, business ownership, and consulting experience I’ve learned that the most valuable and sacred asset of any organization is its people. Focus on their success and happiness as they define it and you will tap into immeasurable value in your business. I’ve since had the opportunity to test this theory and see the success in acting as a bank CEO and private business owner, as well as through numerous advisory relationships with executive teams within manufacturing, professional services, education, and non-profit industries. When I’m not driving culture, you can find me having a glass of wine with my bride of 23 years, desperately clinging to my teen and college-age kids, coaching baseball, or skiing at every opportunity I can find.
My passion is people. I believe most people have untapped potential, and if businesses invest in unleashing that potential – then numbers will follow. I’ve had the opportunity to master a variety of roles, from lending to treasury management to operations to talent management. I’ve worked with start-up companies and tenured organizations. I’ve helped drive cultural change in a way that inspired organic growth, momentum, and team member engagement. I believe learning is a lifelong journey and I welcome new challenges as an integral part of my ongoing development. About 10 years ago I started digging deep into the brain science behind human interactions and it opened up a whole new obsession for me! In my spare time, you’ll find me lovin’ on my family, especially my grandchildren (the greatest dopamine dump ever!) – reading books, singing crazy songs and having sock races down the hallways.
