James’ Power Principle

I hold myself accountable to employees whom I work with every day. I try to motivate employees to have a safe, productive day and encourage a questioning attitude.

   

What Makes Him Proud

I am most proud of being married to my wife Ellen for 35 years, raising four wonderful children, watching them grow into adults and spoiling my four wonderful grandchildren.

 

Projects He Enjoys

I don't really have a favorite project. But I do enjoy being involved with other departments and employees throughout the company in any project that creates a “safety-first” environment.
