Hometown: Tulsa, OK
My professional career began in 1989 with Mobile Mini, Inc. I initially started on the ground floor as a part-time employee and after several months was hired as a production manager. In the 26 years I was there, I grew along with the company in several sales roles. After my first five years, I was promoted to Regional Manager and later to Senior VP of the Eastern Division. I spent my last 15 years at Mobile Mini in that capacity. The entire experience made me who I am today as a leader and person.
We worked with several recruiting firms throughout my tenure at Mobile Mini. The one that stood out above all the rest was Job Brokers (later known as TruPath!). I was always impressed with their professionalism and willingness to understand our culture before even talking about a specific position.
After I retired from that company, several others approached me about coming to work with them. None of those opportunities fit me culturally. Then one day, Ryan Nouis called me and wanted to talk. After our discussion and eventually meeting the TruPath team, I decided this would be the next chapter of my life.
I moved to Arizona from Oklahoma 29 years ago and consider this my home. I have a beautiful wife and five children. I enjoy going back to Norman, OK each year to watch my beloved Sooners play football and spending time on the beach with my family.
