HOUSTON, TX (May 1, 2016) - Silver Fox Advisors announced today the May 2016 Lunch & Learn Program, scheduled for Thursday May 26, 2016, will feature Brian Fielkow owner of Houston-based Jetco Delivery. Brian is the author of Driving to Perfection: Achieving Business Excellence By Creating A Vibrant Culture, a comprehensive guide for building strategic company culture. He has developed a proven formula that directly ties a company's culture to its bottom line by empowering employees, managing and driving change, and distinguishing between values and priorities. Brian’s second book, Leading People Safely: How to Win on the Business Battlefield will be released in September 2016.
Since purchasing Jetco, a logistics company specializing in regional trucking, heavy haul and national freight, in 2006, Brian has grown the company six-fold by focusing on employees engagement around culture, which he believes directly translates into corporate prosperity. As a business leader still in the game, Brian does not focus on the theory behind culture, but rather provides hands-on tools for executives and managers to create and sustain their own company’s culture by offering low-cost, high-value ideas.
As an expert on corporate culture and business leader running his own company, Brian has been featured on Money.com, CBS, NBC, FOX, ABC, NPR, Wall Street Journal Radio, Fast Company, The Street and others, and is a regular contributor to Entreprenuer.com. A public speaker, Brian travels throughout the country presenting on the topic of corporate culture.
Prior to purchasing Jetco, Brian managed over $700 million in operations, and served as Chief Operating Officer of The Peltz Group (the nation's largest privately held recycling company), Executive Vice President of Recycle America Alliance, a subsidiary of Waste Management, Inc., (the largest environmental solutions provider in North America), and practiced corporate law after receiving his J.D. from Northwestern University School of Law. Brian is a member of the Board of Directors of Affinity Insurance, LTD., where he also serves on the Board's risk control committee.
Mary L. Kole, Chairman of the Silver Fox Advisors, stated, “When it comes to building a truly excellent company culture, where do you start? What is the secret ingredient that will take your company to the next level? Brian Fielkow, business leader and author, has the answer: company culture.” If you want a lesson in creating a corporate culture that just might drive business in your company too this is a must presentation you do not want to miss.”
