What was your very first job, and what did you learn from it?

I was a bagboy at the Piggly Wiggly. I think I learned humility.

Whom do you admire most and why?

My grandfather. He’s where I think I got my financial acumen from — he was an accountant. And he just loved life.

What’s your definition of success?

Professional and personal success mean very, very different things to me. But professional success is finding a career that you really enjoy and feel like you can make a difference. That’s the great thing about my job here is I love coming to work every day and love helping our customers and love building a business where our employees can be successful.

What’s your favorite part of your job?

Finding new ways to grow the business

Your workday is off to a bad start. How do you turn it around?

I get out of my chair and go walk around and go talk to other people, see what other people are working on. There’s usually something cool, something exciting going on that I can get engaged with that; it’ll make me feel better.
