[fruitful_tab title="Troy Hall, Ph.D"] I am a global leader of senior managers with almost 40 years of strategic experience and more than 20 years serving on staff and as an outside marketing consultant for the credit union industry. With a Ph.D. in global leadership & entrepreneurship from Regent University, my international "Not Your Grandpa's Conference Sessions" influence and enable leaders in the areas of leadership, group dynamics, diversity, and critical thinking.

Aside from serving on the Board of Directors for Lowcountry Orphan Relief, acting as an advisor to the Lowcountry Chapter of Credit Unions, and promoting the Carolinas CUL CUaware Protege mentoring program, my schedule allows me to co-host “The Power of Performance,” a weekly blog-talk radio show reaching business leaders across the United States.

Most people know me as a simple man of faith who married his high school sweetheart in 1977 and loves living life in the "hallway." NBC's Today Show highlighted our four generations living under the same roof in a special segment. [/fruitful_tab]
[fruitful_tab title="Paul Heinauer"]paul-heinauer Paul Heinauer was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA where he received his Bachelors of Science in Business from Duquesne University in 1978, followed by an MBA in Marketing from Miami University of Ohio. Shortly after graduation, Paul married his high school sweetheart Paula. They have two married children and currently reside on Sullivan’s Island.

Paul’s business career began in 1979 in the Management Training Program at PPG Industries, a major glass manufacturer headquartered in Pittsburgh. After promotions to key sales and product management positions, Paul was named Branch Manager in PPG’s Greenville office in 1985.

The following year, Paul’s entrepreneurial spirit kicked in to high gear and he relocated to Charleston to start Coastal Glass Distributors to distribute flat and auto glass as well as manufacture insulated glass throughout several states. A few years later Paul founded Glasspro and opened Glasspro’s first auto glass replacement and repair retail facility in North Charleston in 1995. Today Glasspro owns and operates 11 auto glass retail repair centers throughout South Carolina and serves the entire state.

During a career that began by working his way through school as a full-time janitor alongside his father to managing a successful business, Paul Heinauer recently summed up his personal story this way:

"My parents taught me the value of hard work…my family the importance of honesty and trust…my employees the value of mutual respect …and my faith how blessed we all are. The strong commitments I've made to my family, employees, community and faith will never begin to balance all that I have received from each of them.” [/fruitful_tab]
