Stories in this month’s Santa Clarita Valley Business Journal pose some broad questions facing all business leaders who choose to ask them. How can we make a difference while making a dollar? How should we treat our employees in ways that serve them and the company? How do we weather hard times?
Other, more practical questions, also arise. How do we continue to innovate and find good ideas? How do we crack international markets?
In this issue , leaders of SCV-based companies (Neotech Products LLC, Saenger Associates, Andy Gump Temporary Site Services) in widely disparate industries, address those questions.
One of those leaders, Barry Gump, died last month. By all accounts, he was not a person who talked about his philosophy of leadership (though he had one), or sought credit for his good works (though he did much good for many people). He spoke through his actions, and he will be missed.
