I'm so proud of Tommy. Today he met with the CEO of his company so that they could get to know each other and to discuss United Way.
Background: The Executive Leadership Team had decided that Tom would be a good person to lead the company's United Way campaign. The company president called Tom into his office on Monday to find out if he'd be interested. He gave Tom the night to think about it.
As always, I couldn't help but put in my two cents - which was that he should do it. Tom also spoke to his dad who told him the same thing. Well, Tuesday morning Tom informed the company president that he was up for the challenge.
That led to the meeting today with the company CEO. Tom says he thinks things went well and I'm sure that they did. I have so much respect for Tom. He is a super talented manager and I'm sure he will do a great job! He has the leadership skills to excel at any opportunity that comes his way.
