WMS is an incredibly tight-knit team, and I believe a lifetime of playing sports has instilled a team-first mentality in me. The strength of our internal team manifests itself into strong partnerships with our clients and I’m excited to use my skill-set to help continue the great client-focused tradition at WMS.
The thing I enjoy most is spending time with my wife, Heidi, our three young children, and our dog. I especially enjoy volunteering as a coach for my kids’ sports teams as it reminds me of my younger days playing sports and being coached by my father and brother. Outside of my family I enjoy exercise and playing club lacrosse, although I’ve lost a step…or two.
Tony Hsieh: Delivering Happiness. Delivering Happiness is a great book for anyone on outside-the-box thinking and how it applies to leadership and building a successful company and culture. It is applicable to not just leading a company, but how concentrating on the happiness and growth of those around you – whether it be friends, family, or colleagues in the office – helps lead to a greater collaborative success.
