I love being in conversation with interesting people. Over the past year, I’ve had the opportunity to get to know Jeff Gau. He is a passionate leader and someone I put on my “people we’ll be following in 2012”. I was delighted when he accepted my invitation to join me for a conversation on leadership!
Also, as noted in the brief message prior to the episode, I hope you’ll consider supporting The Conversation Hub podcast (click for details).
About Jeff Gau
Since he was young, Jeff Gau has proven that success is not dependent on being the brightest, but rather a leader who produces more leaders than followers. “I’m a B student who was not good at math or science. Yet, I am running a successful technology company.”
A destined leader, Jeff joined the U.S. Air Force out of high school. While focused on gaining money to go to college, Jeff received a series of prestigious promotions – well before his time. He graduated from the University of North Dakota in three years and immediately took his charismatic leadership and relentless work ethic to his first sales position.
Since taking the helm at Marco in 2005, Jeff has led the company through aggressive growth and opportunities. Jeff has transformed what started as a small typewriter dealer in 1973 into a rapidly growing technology and office equipment company with offices throughout the Upper Midwest.
