Listen to Episode

Before we get started, I want to share a few things about the value with this week’s episode.

Over the last 20+ months, the world has been in a unique place. There’s been a record number of people quitting their jobs, and our country’s supply chain has been challenged in extreme ways. Even with these challenges, there are men and women across the United States committed to buckling down and producing the things we utilize daily. Even with all of these obstacles, there has been tremendous demand and increased opportunity.

My guest today is Andrew Green.

Andrew Green is CEO of Parkway Products. Parkway is a national injection molding company across the United States and Mexico. After spending the first 16 years of his career with the multi-billion dollar publicly listed company Sonoco, Andrew decided to take a different path where he wanted to take some risks and become a CEO one day.

This is a jam-packed high-value episode where you’ll learn:

  • What it’s like having a significant life experience and re-evaluating is this the path you want to be on the rest of your life.
  • What about the people that have a passion for manufacturing. Without us, the service economy wouldn’t exist.
  • There’s a benefit of being backed by private equity. When the model works, you can’t grow fast enough.
  • Adapting to change. Why robotics and automation creates more opportunity for those willing to learn and evolve
  • And much more!

Please enjoy this week’s episode with Andrew Green!
