The shift from a mom-and-pop store to a robust web business is a bumpy road. As our operations head during the transition years, Clint helped us navigate. He has a big brain and an even bigger desire to use it more effectively. He read the business books and went to the seminars, and we benefited from his knowledge. But he wasn’t all bookish analytics; Clint is one of those rare individuals who can both ideate and implement. He’d think up a brilliant idea, then think of an equally brilliant way to get it done. Logistics, systems building, operational efficiencies — nothing escaped his attention. Oh, and the idea to add those inspiring and relevant baseball quotes to the core values? That was his too.
