My prior ‘business life’ was really three distinct phases: the Army, business school, and finance. Immediately before embarking on my Hardee’s franchise adventure, I served as vice president and CFO for a $600-plus million segment of a public financial services company. Prior experience in the corporate world included M&A work in both corporate development, and in investment banking. Before that, I was fortunate to have been accepted into and attended Harvard Business School, where I earned an MBA and transitioned into civilian life. But the foundation for my career was my five years in the Army as primarily an infantry officer. I had the opportunity to serve in Germany, and deploy and serve in both Kosovo and Iraq. My experience in the Army taught me the value of leading by example, setting and enforcing standards, and frankly just getting stuff done. I think the combination of my finance experience after business school, and my leadership experience prior gave me the confidence to make the move into the entrepreneurial world of franchising.
