What’s the last book you read and what did you think?
I have been a big fan of many books written by Jim Collins including Good to Great but my favorite business related book is all about building your professional network called Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazzi.
What motivates you to work hard?
Since my first week on the job while a senior in college, I’ve been completely mesmerized by the opportunity I’ve been given to build great companies and advance the careers of genuinely talented professionals. There is an indescribable satisfaction when all my efforts are poured into helping others succeed!
What celebrity would you like to meet at a Starbucks for coffee?
I actually met Ron Howard and his family in Hilton Head at Starbucks. My wife has been a huge Andy Griffith watcher for years and there he was, standing in line right behind us talking with his brother about a movie they were producing. Even got an autograph to make it legitimate!
