With Jody’s “roll up his sleeves” approach, it does not take long to appreciate Jody’s ability to identify and understand the opportunities within a business and to provide solutions. Jody has earned his experience, one role at a time from pushing a broom to C.E.O.
Jody has a relentless passion and innate ability to find better, more efficient and profitable processes throughout your business. In Jody’s words, “I am great at leading and coaching; I am terrible at the status quo (“that’s just the way we do it”). I am also terrible at being a follower”.
Jody is a lifelong learner and is excited to learn something new, very day. He plans to write a book one day, about all the incredible experiences and businesses he has been privileged to work with, finding the time to write the book will be the challenge. This journey called “work” takes him away from home regularly, whether it’s around the corner, or around the world. He is fortunate to have an incredible support system in his amazing wife Nikki and daughter Izzy, friends and family, that all help keep it all pointed in the right direction.
