Just in time to ring in the new year I welcome Oliver Stepe, President, YKK AP America Inc., to the program. This inspiring and informative interview covers Oliver's path from growing up in Long Island, to college, to glazing sub contractor, to US Aluminum, to YKK, and his ascension from regional technical sales professional to President of the business. Oliver has great insights into team-building, adding value, consultative sales, approaching work, analytics, new ideas, marketing, thought leadership, manufacturing, and current trends. I found it very informative to listen back prior to final posting and production.
From his LinkedIn bio, "(He) oversees the North American architectural products business including commercial, residential, and related operating units, building loyal customers, engaged employees, and trying to making a positive difference in the lives of our employees and the industries and communities in which we work. We call it The Cycle of Goodness
I find Oliver to be a thoughtful executive leader. Enjoy the show. Leave a comment. Engage with the community.
