When he’s not in the office...

I enjoy playing a round of golf or hanging around the house. I also have seven wonderful grandchildren and we are a very close family.

He wasn’t always interested in finance...

When I was filling out college applications, I had no clue what to put as my major. I knew I didn’t want to go into the sciences, so I just checked the first box – which happened to be accounting. I ended up going to the University of Illinois and pursuing my degree there.

I worked in the CWT travel division in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, where I had the opportunity to meet some great people and build some great relationships. Twelve years later, one of those contacts asked me to consider the position of CFO for the government group, which is how I ended up with CWTSatoTravel. Building relationships is an integral part of developing your career.

He tries to conquer his fears...

It’s on my bucket list to go skydiving. I do not like heights and know I would definitely be scared, but the feeling of free falling would be an awesome feeling. I want to get that experience under my belt!

His favorite memory at CWTSatoTravel is...

Winning the ETS2 award is my favorite memory with the CWTSatoTravel team. It was in the making for more than four years. When the Department of Defense contract came out, the fact that we were successful on a number of contracts despite the complexities associated with them is amazing. Big wins like that not only help us retain and grow business, but bring us closer together as well.
