Terry Rybolt – LiveXchange Technologies

When it was released in 1980, “Working 9 to 5” was both a hit record and movie for Dolly Parton. These days, the phrase is as much a relic as the 45 rpm discs that sold more than 500,000 copies. “Working the gig economy” might be more accurate, reflecting both different hours and shorter-term job […]

Tobi Russell – Public Consulting Group

Est. reading time: 5 mins

In 2018, Public Consulting recognized that its approach to “human capital” would no longer be what the company needed to recruit and retain talent. To grow, the company hired Tobi Russell to help develop a “human capital roadmap,” which detailed a new approach to staying competitive and becoming an employer of choice. This past summer, […]

Total Seed Production

The early part of 2019 brought an unforgiving winter to the Heartland, but Aaron Conaway knew it would lift. Always does, of course, and when you measure the 12 months in quarters, the next one is never far away. So for Conaway, president and co-owner of one of the nation’s largest  single facility producers of […]

Tom McCabe – BWX Technologies Inc.

In 2014, before he’d even finished decorating the office, Tom McCabe sat down with Dave Thompson, the CEO of his new employer, Orbital Sciences, for his first major assignment: helping the $1.3 billion defense contractor acquire rocket parts maker ATK, a company three times Orbital’s size. Following months of legal legwork, Orbital was able to […]

Theresa Maldonado – University of Texas at El Paso

In 1976, during her freshman year at Georgia’s Macon Junior College, Theresa Maldonado sat down for a meeting with her math professor. She can still picture the classroom, where the window was and how the light hit the floor at her feet. Mostly, though, she remembers the sinking feeling. “The message was, ‘Women don’t belong […]

It was a game-changer, for sure. Last May’s Murphy vs. NCAA case in which the Supreme Court by a 6-3 vote left it up to the states to decide whether they would join Nevada, Delaware, Oregon and Montana in legalizing sports betting and dealing with its ramifications. Could be a sizable pot of money with […]

Tonica Kombucha

This just might be the story about the little engine that could. Almost literally. For just a decade ago, Zoey Shamai was moving one case of empty bottles at a time by bicycle, between a Toronto warehouse and her very congested apartment kitchen, where she was brewing her own take of a unique organic health […]

Tad Hill – Freedom Financial Group

Est. reading time: 5 mins

The biblical passage about it being better to give than to receive hit home early for Tad Hill. Son of a farmer father and a social worker mother, the young Hill often accompanied his mom as she tended to the elderly and infirm in and around Birmingham, Alabama. The old and disabled folks took a […]

Tim McCoy – The London Company

Est. reading time: 3 mins

Don’t ask the folks at The London Company to predict the future—even a little bit. That’s just not what they do. Instead, their approach is deliberate, measured and simple. Rather than jumping at the shiniest new objects—say, the trendiest and latest IPOs—and essentially betting on uncertainty, their focus is on purchasing companies with sustainable competitive […]

Ted Kakoyiannis – Valyrian Capital LLC

Est. reading time: 3 mins

Ted Kakoyiannis was at a point of professional atrophy. As a transactional attorney in the real estate realm, he was negotiating and drafting contracts and loan documents and advocating for his clients—but he wasn’t really creating anything. Then, another possibility began to reveal itself: As his experience grew, he recalls, clients were increasingly asking him […]
