Ron Cardey, Senior Vice President of Customer Engagement at Kwik Lok 

1/ How do you define success?   

Being a better person to others today than I was yesterday. 

2/ What drove you to work in the industry?   

I actually got into the industry by answering a newspaper ad for a position in 1983! 

3/ How would you describe yourself in a sentence?   

I am highly competitive, a wee bit impatient, and I sincerely care about the well-being of those I work with and meet. 

4/ What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?  

Life is a 3-legged stool (Family, Personal, & Profession).  If the legs get out of balance, the stool falls over. 

5/ What advice would you give to your 16-year-old self? 

 Don’t worry about things you don’t control. 

6/ Who is your biggest inspiration?  

 My Dad  

7/ Name something that you cannot live without?   

My family 

8/ If you didn’t work in the Bakery industry where would you be? 

 Playing center field for the Minnesota Twins! 

9/ What is your favorite bakery treat?  

 Whatever is currently in front of me!  OK, apple fritters!
