What do you enjoy most about your job?
I enjoy the people I work with but also the people in our industry. I have been in this industry for over 32 years and have worked with many of our customers for years. Not only are they business associates but I am also fortunate to consider many of them friends. Every day brings a new challenge and new questions on the use of Crosby products. There is always something new to learn even after 32 years.
What are some of the activities you enjoy the most outside of work?
My wife and I enjoy cycling, just for recreation, although she did sign us up for a charity ride of 720 kms in 7 days a few years back. I also enjoy doing home improvement projects and helping family and friends with their projects as well.

When I was younger I use to train and show quarter horses.
