Every leader in his or her career is faced with opportunities to make a difference. As a leader, I have been given the opportunity to make a difference and build on the great foundation that has been handed to me. I have accepted the position of President for Spirax Sarco Inc, USA. I look forwarding to leading this great organization, learning from the strengths and experience of an amazing team and building the legacy for the next generation. Leaving a legacy requires a commitment to building shareholder and stakeholder value every day. My goal and commitment to my new team is to do exactly that; together we will succeed. We will seize the moment and opportunity each days brings!
It is not easy to plough a new path to make a vision a reality. True leaders will be successful not only in having the vision but in making it happen. Driving execution versus leading execution of a strategy is the ownership of the destination. Leading others to make the vision their passion leads to a sustainable future and realized vision. Those who drive execution may reach the destination, the question remains as to whether it will be sustained.
