Based on his 25 years of business leadership and firsthand experiences as a current business executive, Brian Fielkow, J.D., offers a unique approach to cultivating a healthy culture. Owner of Houston-based Jetco Delivery, he is the author of Driving to Perfection: Achieving Business Excellence By Creating A Vibrant Culture, a comprehensive guide for building strategic company culture. He has developed a proven formula that directly ties a company's culture to its bottom line by empowering employees, managing and driving change, and distinguishing between values and priorities.
Since purchasing Jetco, a logistics company specializing in regional trucking, heavy haul and national freight, in 2006, Brian has grown the company six-fold by focusing on employees engagement around culture, which he believes directly translates into corporate prosperity. As a business leader still in the game, Brian does not focus on the theory behind culture, but rather provides hands-on tools for executives and managers to create and sustain their own company’s culture by offering low-cost, high-value ideas.
As an expert on corporate culture and business leader running his own company, Brian is a regular contributor to Entrepreneur.com and has been featured on CBS, NBC, FOX, ABC, NPR, Wall Street Journal Radio, Fast Company, The Street and others. A public speaker, Brian travels throughout the country presenting on the topic of corporate culture.
Prior to purchasing Jetco, Brian managed over $700 million in operations, and served as Chief Operating Officer of The Peltz Group (the nation's largest privately held recycling company), Executive Vice President of Recycle America Alliance, a subsidiary of Waste Management, Inc., (the largest environmental solutions provider in North America), and practiced corporate law after receiving his J.D. from Northwestern University School of Law.
