What is your core philosophy for doing business? “The best connection is the one you are with…in person….face to face. Enjoy the tone, body language and the content of the discussion. Remember why and find out why their opinion is important to them.

Who is your role model and why? “My role model, now deceased, is Patrick W. Cotter….Mr. Renaissance of the 501(c)3 world and former managing partner of what is now the Quarles and Brady law firm.  He was always there for me as surrogate dad (from 7th grade) with the underlying philosophy of “always give back, be grateful and be thankful.”

What was the funniest thing that has ever happened to you? “When my former staff convinced me that I had only thirty minutes to make a powerful business development presentation to a female executive who was in town and was “squeezing” us into her very busy schedule… I was wondering why my wife was there. The Executive was quite a dancer!”
