Role & Values
Making a positive difference in people's lives is one of my heartfelt desires, and the impact on the supply chain that Valor Victoria achieves is a great way to make a difference for people and businesses. Having grown up in a family owned business where I started working at age 13, I have a passion to help hard-working business people be successful. At Valor Victoria, it's my role to steward the business's financial performance, and to ensure our Finance team takes good care of customers and vendors. With responsibilities in Human Resources as well, I'm delighted our management team endeavors to cultivate a people-focused culture for all members of the Valor Victoria team and mutually successful relationships with our business partners.
I've filled roles in public accounting, small business leadership, and nearly two decades in financial leadership roles for a successful division of a global Fortune 500 company. My deepest passion is my family. My wife, Marie, and I have been married for nearly 43 years (I snatched her up soon after she finished high school), and we have 3 adult married children and 7 grandchildren. In addition to my love for my family, I would say I'm a sports enthusiast, particularly baseball and football. One of my life's goals is to see a ballgame in every Major League baseball park and I have several left to visit.
