I’ve known and worked with Jerry for several years in a CEO Peer group. He is first and foremost a listener. He thinks first and is careful to understand before offering his thoughts or suggestions. He cares deeply about people and models Servant Leadership. He is not the type of consultant who can’t wait to tell you what he knows. Instead, he is thoughtful and reflective. He understands process and brings a process approach to solving business and people challenges.
I worked with Jerry over the last 4 years most recently as Vice President of Operations/Supply Chain/Quality when he was the President and CEO of Windings. What I most admire about Jerry is his principled, high integrity company leadership. He never lost sight of his personal or company core values and the impact of all management and supervision decisions on the company culture and long term customer and company results. He did not let short term pressures disproportionately drive decisions that were not good for the company or its employee owners’ long term success. In this regard his customer and people centered leadership was refreshingly transparent and consistent setting a clear moral compass for the entire company during both high growth and challenging business times.
