Aviate, Navigate, Communicate: Breaking Down Boxes- New Episode Out Now

Gene Marino, Executive Vice President, Akers Packaging Service Group and AICC Board Chair, and Joe Morelli, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Huston Patterson Printers & Lewisburg Printing Company and AICC Associate Board Chair, went outside of the packaging industry to speak with BJ Slater, pilot and Owner/ Operations Manager, Plant Marvel Laboratories on Breaking Down Boxes.

“BJ graciously provided insight for a challenging topic faced by many privately held businesses in a way that is relatable and practical,” said Marino.

Slater shares his story about transitioning the 100-year-old fertilizer company from his father and uncle to him and his cousin. It was not all clear skies for this bush pilot when dealing with family dynamics, differing expectations, and family dinners. 

He also explains how his training as a pilot has impacted his leadership and communication styles.

New episodes drop the first Monday of every month. The latest episode, Aviate, Navigate, Communicate, is available now.
