Bixler Spotlights ... 2015

May 17, 2015 -- Millennials Raise $100,000 for Homeless Veterans and celebrate Memorial Day

The first annual Trinity Combine Decathlon was conceived and organized by 10 Atlanta Millennials with a goal to raise $100,000 to benefit homeless veterans at Trinity Community Ministries.  They met and surpassed this!   126 former professional but mostly non-professional athletes competed for bragging rights; more importantly they found a way to give back to veterans in need who gave so much for our country.  Trinity Community Ministries has helped over 1,000 homeless men since 1988.   

Willis Reavis, a former homeless veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, competed in the Combine.  “The opposite of success isn’t failure because failure is part of success, but it’s quitting.”  Willis has reclaimed his life with a full time job and a bright future through the Trinity House residential program.  

The Combine event included a 400-meter run, a football throw, a 40-yard dash, a 500-meter row, bench press, pull ups, dips, vertical jump, a 200-yard shuttle run and an 800-meter run.   Sponsors included RockTenn, Synovus, Ironwood Insurance, Bixler Consulting Group, Trader Joes, Lulu Lemon, Kind Bars, CrossFit 404, and King of Pops.

January 21, 2015 -- Hilton Graduation, McLean, Virginia

The 2014 class of Hilton General Managers recently graduated from the Hilton Executive Roundtable, a year-long leadership program provided by Bixler Consulting Group.  There were a host of luminaries in the audience, including Rob Palleschi, Global Head of Full Service Hilton. The presentations highlighted a variety of personal achievements and strong business results from this past year.  The theme that echoed over and over was that when you start in business, you work on yourself.  But you become a leader when you work on the development of others.  Congratulations to this dynamic group of Hilton GMs.  As life-long alumni of the class, their leadership will enhance their teams, the Hilton brand, and provide continued support of each other throughout their careers.

February 3, 2015 -- Lessons in Leadership featuring Steve Cannon, CEO, Mercedes-Benz USA 

Steve Cannon, CEO of Mercedes-Benz USA, was warmly welcomed today to the Atlanta business community, which was recently chosen as the new national headquarters for the company.  Hala Moddelmog, President of the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, led a lively discussion on how the father of 9 children successfully runs the U.S. business.   Following were my favorite take-aways.  

What keeps him up at night - How to find and hire the best people.  "Great people have the natural inclination to build cultures of service and community in every department, at every location.  Culture is transportable, a movable feast.  It provides a huge benefit relative to the investment. I have studied culture and as an economics major, I know it provides the greatest ROI to an organization of anything that we can do to build the business.  "   

His favorite non-profit - Along with his class at West Point, Steve Cannon founded "Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation."  The foundation has provided 16,000 college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.       

His favorite book - Team of Rivals – A prize winning biography of Abraham Lincoln's political genius in assembling a contentious but powerful cabinet. As Cannon hires 600 employees for his Atlanta management team, he is committed to building the most well-rounded team possible.

His strategy for Mercedes - To sell the entry level Mercedes (which is almost the same price point as a loaded Ford Focus) to Milllenials and keep them as loyal Mercedes customers all their lives.  "We want to continue to provide one of the safest cars in the world and bring all the controls to the steering wheel, so that the driver never needs to look down at a display screen or let go of the wheel."
