Paul Greene
Engineer

"Do what you love for a living. If you can find that, you'll be wildly successful and happier than you can ever imagine."

As children, we're all asked the question "What do you want to be when you grow up?" How did you answer?

An NFL football player.

What have been the most defining moments along your career path?

Succesfully turning around a manufacturing production line in my first job after college. Leading a one-on-one meeting with the CFO of a major domestic car manufacturer in my most recent job. I like the contrast of those two moments specifically as they demonstrate my experience at both ends of the spectrum: on the front lines and in the front office.

How did you get your big breaks?

By setting clear goals, working harder than those around me, and maintaining a professional and genuine demeanor.

What was the best advice you received when you were first starting out in your career?

Do what you love for a living. If you can find that, you'll be wildly successful and happier than you can ever imagine.

What have you learned from your experience?

The world is a competitive place filled with exceptionally bright and talented people. To make a difference, you must have true passion and desire for what it is that you are doing. Passion can more than make up for shortages in other areas.

What most excites you about your job right now?

The freedom and flexibility given to me in the job, the environment of constant learning which feeds my intellectual curiosity, being surrounded by exceptionally brilliant people, and the contant challenge which keeps me from getting bored.

What would you like to have achieved by the last day of your career?

I want to look back without any regrets, knowiong that I thoroughly enjoyed my career. I want to be viewed as successful by my peers in terms of my contributions and respected for the way in which I acheived them. Furthermore, I want to accomplish this without sacrificing the relationships with those close to me.
