Professional Background and Achievements
I’ve been in rent-to-own / retail businesses for 35 years. I have worked in, managed, and led hundreds of stores at an executive level. I’ve been an owner operator of nine Aaron’s stores, and I’ve served as chief operator, vice president and many other roles in the industry over the years including President of the Iowa Nebraska Rental Dealers Association and Valvoline National Franchise Board Member
When did I start working for BCP and what positions have I held?
I began working at Bernau Capital in 2007. I split my time among the various BCP Companies, and I also serve on the boards of our various businesses.
What was the last job I had before coming to work for BCP?
I owned and operated 9 Rent to Own stores.
What is my specific role at BCP beyond my job title?
Tom Bernau has created an inspirational platform that allows and encourages all of our leaders to thrive and achieve at levels of accomplishment above and beyond what one can imagine. As I have the privilege of serving alongside Tom and our business leaders, I see my role as a daily opportunity to share in all the things they are doing right (and almost right). It is also an honor to support these amazing leaders through the good, as well as challenging seasons of business. I also see my role as a problem solver so we can achieve our shared vision of an inviting and satisfying workplace. We at BCP understand that the most important asset of all is our great people. We develop businesses and provide career opportunities that we feel truly make a difference to our people and in our world.
I’m married to Amy and have been for 27 years. We have 3 daughters Maddie, Makenna and Hannah. We also have a lab named Jax, a pug named Chloe and two cats BobCat and Elvis.
I love the endeavor of business, friends, outdoors, fitness, reading anything that has to do with history or biography, spending time with family and my boy Jax.
In 15 years, we have grown from just over a hundred people employed in our organization to over one thousand.
