The wise Warren Buffet would say that the people who enjoy the shade of trees today are enjoying them because someone planted those trees years ago. In the case with Perry Mandera, the CEO and Founder of the renowned transport business The Custom Companies, Inc., many children are enjoying the benefits of good education because Perry Mandera planted the seeds to build the Custom Cares Foundation, which is the charity group that helps underprivileged children.
There are many excellent attributes of Mandera but it is primarily his years of experience and being in business that really stands out. Since 1976 Mandera has been in the transportation business, helping many clients with their logistics needs. With the experience that he has in the shipping business, he is able to help companies around Illinois to get the business solutions that they require to grow their enterprise. Job creation is important to Mandera and the fact that he is able to generate more jobs with his company is a source of inspiration to the young to start their companies, too.
Mandera was also once part of the Marines. It was in that service that he found the meaning of camarederie and to be a service to humanity. His experience has shaped his vision on what business truly means, and that is service to the people around you in the most dignified and sustainable way possible. NGOs help but these charity groups are only temporary reliefs. The best way to help communities, Mandera agrees, is to provide families and communities with good source of income.
What’s also extra commendable in the work of Mandera today is that he spends a large chunk of his time helping children in need. He not only gives them temporary relief, but through his charity work in Custom Cares, he aids them to get all the access, support, resource and psychological support to get back to their studies and dream bigger. Just because Mandera is active in charity work doesn’t mean that he forgets about the importance of building an excellent business. His dedication for such vision is paying off because Mandera just got singled out and rewarded as one of the Top 100 American Transportation Executives of the Millenium.
