“Feel like you’re changing propellers on an airplane
while it’s still in flight?”

“Sometimes growing a business feels like you are changing propellers on an airplane while it’s still in flight… It seems like an impossible task, and having the best #2 person on your team to manage day-to-day operations can mean the difference between success and failure. Whether on an interim or permanent basis, my sleeves are rolled up providing the experience, maturity and judgement needed to keep the visionaries visioning, the CEO guiding the company and the team leaders focused and on task.

As a servant leader within your organization I support the C-team in whatever is needed to maintain it’s strategic focus, and keep the company on track. Whether for  few days, a few weeks or months, or permanently, I’m here to support you.” – Clay Boykin

Clay is a gifted leader who is able and willing to collaborate with a wide spectrum of team members, from production operators, sales/marketing, to engineers. He is results-driven and is able to spot legitimate market trends without being reactionary to small events. I benefitted tremendously from Clay’s leadership example and consider myself a better team member because of the sincere and effective model he provided during our 5+ years working together.
