o I was hired by Bob Smith and Rich Fuchs when I got out of the Army at Ft. Knox in January 1969.
o Trained in Louisville under Don Henson and Gary Schuetz in their West End territory that Don mentioned.
o Moved to the Evansville Area Sales Office(ASO) in June 1969. Worked for Bob Smith and then Tom Heffner.
o July 1971 went to the sales training center in Rochester.
o 1972 went to the Chicago O'Hare Branch as a Sales Manager.
o 1974 move to the Midwest Region as the 9200 Launch Manager.
o December 1975 moved to Milwaukee as Branch Sales Manager.
o July 1979 went back to the Midwest Region in Chicago.
o March 1980 came back to the Louisville Branch.
o Left Xerox at the end of 1983-went to a company headed by Jim Russell-a former Xerox Omaha Branch Manager.
o Got in the real estate business in 1985 with Semonin Realtors-in my mind they are the "Xerox of the Louisville residential real estate market." I tell people that those 6 moves with Xerox were actually "on the job training for real estate!"
Today, I do volunteer work with my church, American Red Cross Blood Services, and Meals-on-wheels!
I am blessed with a great wife, Mary, who I met and married at Ft. Knox prior to joining Xerox. We have 2 daughters, Kelly and Allison, two great son-in-laws-Mitch Emoff and Tom Whitten and 5 loveable grandchildren(Courtney, Hope, Caroline, Tre and Paige.)
I want to commend David Doll and Don Henson for their candid comments in their bios. In my own way, I will attempt to do the same:
Priorities in my life continue to be: faith, family, & career. In that regard, the Good Lord has blessed me and my family abundantly! Xerox was part of those blessing-what great people everywhere, what great training, what great opportunities, and what great rewards!
Xerox always taught us to set goals for the "long-term," and in that regard, (as we all get older), it's appropriate to prepare "ourselves" for the "long-term", where peace with our Lord is, and in my opinion, so important. I would be happy to discuss this with any of you at any time.
I look forward to hopefully seeing you all at the next Ex-Xerox event, and in the words of that famous motivational speaker, Zig Zigler, "See You on Top!"
