Achieving Excellence: I'm often asked by peers about my education and what degree(s) I hold. The answer to that question is simple - I'm a "self-made man". Though not college educated, I have succeeded because of grit and a belief in life-long learning. Today, success for me means living my values, both in my personal life and in business. Success means enriching lives by engaging the talent and passion of people who believe there is always a better way, and that is how B&B achieves excellence.
