I would like to share with you my own personal psychology of what being the leader of Peoples Products and Evolutionary Home Energy Solutions means to me. I was born and grew up in the early 60's, when society operated in a very different way. A simple handshake had more meaning back then, and when people entrusted you to do work for them, you felt a moral obligation to get it done and do it right. Pride, integrity and honesty are core values that my parents taught me as a child and I still value today.
At the time I write this, my mother is suffering from Alzheimer's disease, which for anyone who's experienced a family member's rapid decline, it is sad and difficult to watch. My mother was unconditional in her love for me and my brother. Always there for us. To meet her, you might conclude that she did not have a strong presence, but a deeply impactful one for certain.
My father was quite different. He was a dreamer. He was an artist. He worked a regular 7-3 job each day at the Fafnir Bearing company in Newington, CT. But in his heart, he was a cartoonist. He had created many characters, and storyboarded many situations for his characters to live in. It was fascinating to me.
I can remember him always wanting to improve his place in this life by bettering his chances for success. He took a Dale Carnegie course in the early 1970's and he felt empowered by what it had taught him. I can vividly recall him sitting me down as a young boy, probably 8 or 9 years old, and telling me... You can do whatever you put your mind to.
While I didn't at that time have a full grasp on the importance of that statement, it resonated with me throughout my life.
My dad was my best friend, and my best friend had a lot to do with the early shaping of my life. Perhaps all of his words were accentuated and took on a far greater significance to me because of the sudden way he died. At the untimely age of 48, he suffered a sudden, massive heart attack that stole him from his family and everyone who loved him. Age 11 is a difficult age to have to go through anything like this (I suppose any age would be), but I've definitely had a lot of time to think about who he was, and why knowing him had such a profound impact on me as his son.
We will live up to the ideals of integrity, honesty, and a passion for success in our commitment to serving you in the most outstanding way possible.
Thank you for taking the time to understand the roots of my commitment to you!
