Terry considers himself extremely fortunate to have found his passion with McWane and he has never looked back. His motto is: “Get out, get seen and get known.” His first boss told him “they don’t give you a vehicle to sit at a desk.” He has kept that in the back of his mind from day one.
Terry is motivated by returning the trust that McWane has put into him by doing his best to promote the success of the company every day. His contributions to the customer experience lie in the fact the customers know he will not lie to them. He has always been upfront about everything, both good and bad news. This has helped him gain their trust.
