A Vistage Member Showcase
Vistage member Greg Fricks, award winner for Courage, is the owner of The Fricks Company (specializing in high-performance, seamless concrete floors). Greg and his brother, Brad, helped their father build up the business with the intent of buying him out with a 10-year succession program. At the end of the program, Greg and his brother learned that their father wasn’t ready to let go of the business. After describing the situation to his Vistage group, Greg committed to taking immediate action. One week later, a conversation encouraged his father to step down and make amends, restoring peace at work — and at home. Greg has grown The Fricks Company from $12 million in 2010 to a projected $31 million in 2012.
