Current and former employees of MacDonald & Owen Lumber Company alike know one thing for sure about the president and owner of MacDonald & Owen–David Twite cares about them. When a new employee joins the ranks of MacDonald & Owen, an employee profile is created to highlight the new employee’s personal interests, family details, and path to M&O. These employee profiles, which includes a picture of the individual, are shared with David so that he knows who is serving his company no matter whether they work under the same roof as he does in Sparta, WI or if they work in PA, KY or northern WI. David wants to know the names and faces of his team. He wants to take an interest in them. He wants to understand their background and future goals.
Considering David’s unique approach to leadership as the president and owner of MacDonald & Owen Lumber Company, it is no wonder he was asked to speak on the topic of Inspirational Leadership at the Excellence in Leadership Seminar & Luncheon in early October. This seminar will be hosted in Oshkosh, WI and will be attended by business leaders from across the state. David will speak to attendees of this seminar about what Inspirational Leadership looks like on a day-to-day, practical basis. He will share stories of how he and his leadership team at MacDonald & Owen are strategic about the leadership of their teams. The seminar will also feature a recently-made video of M&O employees who speak to the inspirational culture of MacDonald & Owen Lumber Company.
Inspirational leadership is not something that every business leader can personify. Fortunately for the employees, customers and vendors of MacDonald & Owen Lumber Company, David Twite does. Excellent leadership is one of a handful of attributes that make M&O a great place to work and a great place to do business. We aim for inspirational in all that we do–it’s what drives us. And, fortunately, David provides a great example to follow.
