Connect with other professionals over drinks and appetizers at this casual happy hour event. Hear from business and civic leaders shaping the future of NEO.

Featuring Bill Canady, CEO , Swagelok

Bill Canady is President and Chief Operating Officer at Swagelok. He currently serves on the boards of the Great Lakes Science Center and Playhouse Square Foundation.

Come hear from Bill about his career path and how community involvement and board service have helped him along the way.

A note from Bill:

As a leader, I seek to do two things. First, I think it’s important to have a clear vision and to be able to share that vision with the team. I’ve never been in a position where there’s been a lack of opportunity. In fact, it’s always that there are too many opportunities. So as a leader, I think it’s my job to help teams focus and align behind the critical few opportunities and drive those across the finish line. That’s exciting to me and, I think, to the team as well.

Second, for me, leadership is about helping people develop—being a servant leader. Several people who worked for me early in their careers are presidents or CEOs today. It’s wonderful, and it makes me so proud. I think that’s where the legacy lies.

Staying true to these principles helps me make an impact every day—on the business and on my teams.
