Where did you grow up?  Elk Grove Ca 95624.

What do you enjoy off work? 
I enjoy Bass fishing, golfing and taking care of our Koi pond.

What do you credit to your success? 
I credit my Family, employee's and my business coach Cami Mclaren.
The other thing is following the formula for success. 1. Clearly state your goal. 2. Have a end date for your goal. 3. Get accountability partners. 4. Take action daily. 5. On the projected date of completion close down.

What do you like about doing business with W.L.May Company?  
Well I love love love Brad and Kelly.  Todd and Glyn are OK as well.  

Seriously though, having W.L. May truly care about the success of our company.  What does that mean? When we have a idea on how we want parts shipped, packaged picked up, they are there to say what can we do.

What can I share with others in the industry?
The biggest thing I have learned is truly truly treat your employees and customers as family.   For family business, or any business for that matter, find a way for your employees to be successful in business and in their personal life.  How can they go from renting a house to owning a house and living that dream?

Is there anything else you would like to say?  Thank you for the opportunity.
