“My occupational transition to Hyundai has helped to bring several of my dreams to fruition. I grew up in a poor housing project in downtown Montgomery, AL. I always wanted more than my environment offered. I earned several college degrees in pursuit of the American dream, but the job offers were scarce. I desired to work for a Fortune 500 Company. I desired to know what it felt like to live in a house, and provide my kids with a better quality of life than I endured. However, I am thankful for my upbringing because it has helped me to become a very humble person.
When Hyundai called me about a job opportunity, I had already resigned from my last job and I was preparing to move to Tampa to take a position with American Express. My heart was set on going to Tampa, but I told my wife I would enquire more about the Hyundai position before making a final decision. My decision to come to Hyundai came by way of unambiguous divine intervention. I made a great choice to become a part of the team at Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama, and it has been a great journey thus far.
I work for one of the largest most successful automobile manufacturers in the world. I have been fortunate to purchase a new home in a new subdivision in a neighboring county. My kids are blessed to reap the rewards of their dad being a part of a great company; that’s also perceived as being a “great family company” in their eyes. Hyundai has helped to pave the way for my success, and I’m thankful that Hyundai is The All American Success Story.”
