I am originally from Akron, OH where I graduated from the University of Akron with a Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Management. I worked 28 years with Keebler/Kellogg in a variety of progressive roles within Distribution/Warehousing before coming to Thrift Books. I currently live in Geneva, IL with my wife Lisha who still works for Kellogg. We have 4 children, Dicky 36, DJ 33, Tyler 26 and Danielle 21.
I am an avid sports fan of all Cleveland teams as well as the OSU Buckeyes. Love to travel, play golf, spend time outdoors and work on my landscaping. My wife and I along with son Chef Dick have a restaurant in Akron, OH called Chop & Swizzle that is doing quite well.
I highly recommend reading Urban Meyer's (coach of the OSU Buckeyes) book, Above the Line. This book is not just for a sports fan, but also lends itself well to those in the business world. The book focuses on building a strong team and striving toward and achieving greatness.
I am currently not reading any books, but looking for the next best read!
