It really struck me when we were standing on that podium looking out at the New York Stock Exchange to ring the opening bell. We did it. We brought these two fabulous family businesses that were only known in the private sphere and built up the largest global player. It was surreal.
That moment was the pinnacle for me but there have been so many rewarding things about my time with MRC Global.
My favorite part of my job is the people. In my role, interacting with senior management and the executive management team and seeing them grow is really rewarding. Looking back, the leadership I had with me that morning was so strong and they were committed to helping guide the company through so much change. And the team I have now is just as committed but I’ve gotten to be part of their career paths. That’s very rewarding. The future of our leadership and our company is strong, and I’m grateful for the opportunity to be part of it.
