Two parts hard work, one part being in the right place at the right time...

I have been with CWT in a number of different roles over the span of the past 16 years. I spent about eight years with the CWT Solutions Group, was asked to move to Canada to lead the country for a few years, then came back to the US as the head of our Global Marketing organization, and finally moved into my current position as the President of CWTSatoTravel. I’d say this career path was two parts hard work, and one part just being in the right place at the right time.

Outside of the office, I’m basically just a big kid! I like to hang out with my 12 year old son, I like to play tennis, I’m a music enthusiast and collect vinyl records, and much to my wife’s chagrin, I’m spend a lot of time on my PlayStation. As a family, we love to travel. And I also have a trByadition of taking a “Daddy Trip” with just my son every year.

A functioning introvert...

On the Meyers Briggs scale, I am considered an INTJ, which is what I refer to as a functioning introvert. I truly enjoy interacting with people in a collaborative environment while also focusing on the things that need to be done on a daily basis as a general manager. I hate being tied behind a desk and love coaching and mentoring people.

I look forward to visiting our agents on site to connect with people one-on-one and hear their stories about why they love what they do. One of my main focuses this year is to connect what CWT wants to get done as an enterprise with our company goals, and figure out how our military and government branch fits into the picture. I have a chance to make people understand and feel like they are a part of something bigger, which is what I like about management jobs in general.

His favorite book...

I read a lot, but only fiction books! I know that isn’t exactly great from a learning perspective, but I often ask for colleagues to recommend books to me to read and discuss in a sort of corporate book club. My favorite book is “The Power of One” by Bryce Courtenay. It was the first “big person book” that my mom recommended to me, and is a terrific story of the underdog about an underprivileged kid growing up in South Africa. It’s always the first book I recommend to anyone who asks.
