When Covid is a part of our world, we pivot to meet with our local leaders. Special thanks to Richard Mark, Chairman and CEO of Ameren Illinois. Richard joined us on Zoom for an hour filled with encouragement and so much wisdom. Richard has built a career from education that led him into leading local vocational programs, to steering St. Mary’s Hospital to success, and now forging ahead at Ameren Illinois to serving clients with the best service and technology. Growing up in Collinsville, he earned a college scholarship to play football. As he arrived at the field, coming from a place as an All American, he had to work his way from the bottom of the list of his position to working and striving every day to earn his starting position. This same philosophy has continued in his story of taking steps through setting goals. He encouraged students to write their goals on 3x5 cards every year and never lose sight of them. Even when you obtain your goal, you have to fight each day to maintain that success. He believes in understanding that your mind has so much ability. What can I do today to make myself better than yesterday and tomorrow, how can I improve over today?

The question is always - are you willing to go above and beyond to be successful? Will you do what it takes to be in that position and promote success for everyone. Thank you for sharing the many insights as you lead a multi-billion dollar company with over 3500 employees, covering 3/4 of the state of IL. These driving principles helped this business move from 15 of 16 in customer satisfaction to number one. Setting expectations to drive to and maintain makes the difference. Thank you for sharing your morning and investing in Collinsville Triad CEO.
