What is your business philosophy?

I believe a company is only as good as its people.

Why did you choose this field / career path?

I grew up around the forest products industry with my Dad procuring wood for a paper mill in southeast Georgia.  It was a natural career path for me to follow.

What is one of the best lessons you’ve learned during your career?

The right decision is often the hardest one to make.

“Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.” – Michael Jordan
