These are always tough. I’m not sure people really care about me telling you how great I am (which I’m not, by the way). Let’s take a different approach. I’ll attempt to share things you may find interesting about me as well as what makes me tick.
Born: Milwaukee. Raised: Brookfield. Reside: New Berlin. As you can see my world in some ways is pretty small. Married (happily) for 32 years with three amazing kids married to three wonderful spouses. Grandchildren…one on the way!.
My background is mostly in business development. I have worked in a number of different industries (residential lighting, medical equipment, office products and office furniture, financial services and HR services). I had always wanted to own a business and when the opportunity came along in 2005 I jumped in not knowing anything about the signage and graphics industry. We have grown steadily since April Fool’s Day 2005 (date of purchase). I give much of the credit to my staff. They are extremely talented and there is no way we could have achieved our success without them.
Things I love (in no particular order); root beer floats, a fine cigar, a smooth whiskey, Dave Matthews Band, golf, my close friends, my beloved family and finally…Jesus (not the Spanish pronunciation). Things I hate; golf, broccoli, the opera, loud people. Favorite books; Good to Great, The Bible. Super powers I most desire; flying, breathing under water.
Why I get out of bed every morning: responsibility is one of my most closely held values. I want to take care of my family, my staff and my clients.
My final thought: The most comforting thing that I can wrap my brain around is found in the Bible. It’s Romans 8:38-39. If you have a moment…check it out. You won’t be disappointed.
