Have you ever wondered what lies behind the Vice President of a company? Whether or not, let me put it bluntly for you: strong will and self-education. These are the two most astounding and representative qualities when it comes to John Call, Vice President of Operations of the company “My Mini Casa”. Being recently employed, he had previously worked as a freelancer, owning a factory that processed, manufactured and packaged nuts, confections and snack products. He had also owned a candy factory which he sold. The truly important aspects are, however, the accomplishments he succeeded to make and, to be honest, there is a great amount of them.
He regards the growth in profitability for his last business (over 40% in the first year solely) as a main goal that got checked on his list and this is highly sustained by:
– Improving manufacturing processes through investing in automation equipment;
– Equally reducing the number of products (to less than 120) prior to a reduction in waste and spoiled product;
– Changing the way he worked with his delivery partners which resulted in reducing losses due to spoils and returned product;
– Efficiently outsourcing parts of the business which it did not excel at;
– Implementing processes that improved customer service, accounting, manufacturing and distribution;
– Developing relationships with both vendors, that enabled his business to achieve overall margin improvement, and customers, that grew sales and promotional opportunities; all these strategies he successfully implemented aiming at customer satisfaction, which his business achieved.
Similar to these achievements, he is keen on making the most of his new position by making his resolutions come true: expand sales to all parts of the USA, improve revenue and profitability, put forth team building in the organization, provide customers with a quality product to meet their expectations and needs, and all this for the company which he calls “My Mini Casa”.
As you can see so far, John’s management style has mainly included cooperating with employees in order to make their company a welcoming environment where people feel free to work. John Call is of the firm belief that from his position, it is his duty to honor and communicate a clear company objective to the MMC agents as well as getting through to them the importance of their contribution to the company’s success. What’s more, he regards them as the most significant assets and does not consider himself above any job in the company.
In other words, the man John Call is an example of determination and leadership: “I have always believed that in order to help our agents achieve success, I must give them clear instructions as to what their responsibilities are and allow them to do their jobs. I believe in accountability and personal responsibility. It is my job to help them achieve personal success which I believe translates into the success of the organization.”
Although the main idea of “My Mini Casa” is to ship containers which cater for various needs such as storage, transportation and shelter, there is no worry when people ask for something else. “Convert a container? We can make it!”, claims John Call, new Vice President of Operations for MMC company, who also supports the ability of his new staff to fabricate. He fully comprehends his responsibility in his new position and intends to accomplish his goal fair and square for everyone. They have already started to work on the goals of the company which includes making it easier for parents to be with their families, helping them raise their income, all these being actions which John Call truly believes in, also the reason for which he feels more than fond of continuing to ‘recruit’ people without an occupation from which to earn money or people who are in need of an additional income.
As to what concerns the man John Call, he refers to his personal life by this: “I live in the mountains of Utah in a town called Heber City. I live there with my wife and four children. We enjoy attending athletics events, boating and jet skiing, spending time at our family cabin in Idaho, riding our ATVs in the mountains around our house.” Therefore, you can easily see there is a sensible side to this man which he profitably combines with his professional responsibilities.
With John Call as Vice President of Operations of “My Mini Casa”, the entire company will only go forward. His strong determination and power of will are part of the assets that will ensure the success of this business. Not only does his employment background provide him with great managerial skills, but people will also feel comfortable to buy products from a person who knows himself and his purpose in the company. Additionally, the trust John Call inspires has the ability to empower people and determine them to choose and believe in the choices that give their life quality.
