I have always loved the Ken Blanchard quote that “None of us is as smart as all of us” because of the implication that success comes from collective wisdom and teamwork. That’s certainly the case at Dix & Eaton, where – as a professional services firm – our people, and their commitment, dedication and expertise, make all the difference in terms of performance and great client service.

This week we’re announcing the promotion of Gregg LaBar to managing director at the firm, and it’s a prime example of one individual who makes a huge impact by being a great teammate. A 16-year employee at Dix & Eaton, Gregg is a senior leader responsible for heading our Sustainability/Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) practice, while also co-directing efforts for our Energy and Natural Resources practice. He’s heavily involved with organizations including the Corporate Roundtable/Corporate Sustainability Network, Baldwin Wallace University’s Institute for Sustainable Business Practice, NorTech Energy Enterprise and Sustainable Cleveland, among others. The Indiana University of Pennsylvania graduate has become one the region’s most knowledgeable and visible thought leaders on sustainability and corporate social responsibility.

As an MD at D&E, Gregg’s reach as a client leader, member of the firm’s Leadership Committee and mentor is significant, but it’s his reputation as a collaborative partner that sets him apart. We’re very proud to call him one of ours, and excited to recognize him for his notable contributions.

You can follow Gregg on Twitter and can frequently read his thoughts and blog entries on our blog.
