One man tells an inspiring story of how his CEO started from the bottom of the company, rose through the ranks, and was able to succeed.
This is the story of our CEO who I admire and respect...became CEO.
He had been SVP for a few years now, and the owner of the company wanted him to take over as CEO as the owner was going retire and the company was going transition into more of a corporate governing structure, some of this had already been completed. Like they had a board of directors etc.
The debate over who would be the CEO came down to two people.
John: He was hired by this company in college when he was 21, and he never graduated. He grew from the bottom up. He had worked in basically every department, lead every department, and understand the company inside and out.
