Derek motivates me to continue my own personal development. His commitment to personal development and relentless pursuit of excellence is something I admire and pushes me to improve myself.
Chez Misko, Owner & Chief Operating Officer at Wisconsin Athletic Club
Derek is a natural born leader. His initiative, drive and energy are admirable. As a manager, he motivates, mentors and develops his staff. He is continually seeking ways to improve himself and the people he leads. He sets high expectations, while providing the tools needed to succeed and praising staff along the way. I attribute much of my growth to the example he has set for me. He offers support when I need it and trusts my judgment and decision making skills when I don’t. I am extremely fortunate and grateful to have such an influential mentor.
