Ken, thank you for your time last week. We left very uplifted with many ideas of how to change our operation and philosophy. We spent most of the 3 hour trip discussing what we have learned and ideas for implementing.
Ken is a very dynamic individual and brings a lot of aggressiveness to the leadership/sales side of the business. Alexander Lumber got really good at being defensive with our strategies and frugal with our overhead. We have since begun to change our company’s vision to more of a proactive sales-driven model and we are starting to see positive growth not because of the economy but more so because of our habits. Ken is the reason we’ve seen success with this new model. I would not only recommend Ken Wilbanks for any facilitator position but also as a business consultant.
