I believe that none of us can achieve success without some help along the way. For each of us there is a person, a mentor, who we are grateful towards who can help us get  to where we aspire to be. Sharing stories and experiences as a speaker is a way of recognizing the value of these experiences and giving back to the next generation of leaders. It also is a way of demonstrating in words and deed the value I am placing  in mentorship. For me, I have been fortunate to have worked with and mentored by some incredibly special people and none more incredible than Coach John Wooden.

I have broad experiences to share that can help others as they grow and take on new challenges. During my time as president of UPS Supply Chain Solutions, I  integrated over 20 acquisitions that became UPS Supply Chain Solutions  I steered UPS’s entry into the health care industry and created the mantra, “It’s a patient, not a package. ®” With the ability to see a clear vision of the changing business landscape, the passion to develop strategies, tactics, and metrics to drive desired results and the passion to develop the Best, The Brightest, Most Informed and Best People in the industries they serve.
