Wayne has always had a heart for service and helping others. After his naval career, Wayne began his entrepreneurial path and professional career by starting his own business in the hair styling industry. His first company was an eight chair styling salon. During the many hours he spent with his highly successful clients in the chair, he gained valuable business strategies and insight. Wayne was amazed at how much knowledge was available for free, just by asking. After winning several industry awards and selling his salon, Wayne purchased a hair product and equipment franchise, where he gained distribution knowledge by working with a local warehouse to guarantee all processes were successful to meet his clients’ needs. Now Wayne loves to pay it forward and encourages anyone from any company to reach out to him for free advice on how to improve their logistics positions in both cost and service.
