Chairman, SmartFinancial, Inc.
How do you build a company that is not only profitable, but healthy? How do you drive the bottom line in a sustainable way? I believe the answer lies in building a positive corporate culture – an environment where associates can grow, develop, and flourish. Building a great brand involves recruiting passionate, talented teammates who are open to new experiences, lead with positivity, and truly value the contributions of every member of the team. A healthy culture supports inquiry and innovation, where everyone feels empowered to ask questions and seek a better way. When associates are thriving and happy, clients can feel it and profits will follow.
