Randy Lowman, President, The Lattitude Group Starting date of new position: July 8 City: Greensboro Duties: Bringing my unique experience in all aspects of operations, finance and information technology to bear in providing strategic business planning and leadership/management development services for TLG’s clients. My job is to ensure The Lattitude Group delivers the ultimate collaborative experience and results for its clients. Education: Bachelor’s, accounting information systems, Virginia Tech Previous position: I spent over 25 years in leadership roles across a range of industries, including professional services, manufacturing, construction, distribution and retail. What excites you most about this new position? The opportunity to return to my professional roots and passion for helping people and organizations overcome their challenges and achieve their goals. My first job out of college was a road warrior management consulting position with Deloitte, a role I tremendously enjoyed, but ultimately struggled with as a new father. I am excited about returning to the professional services sector and a role where I can make a positive impact in the lives of others each day. How will this job challenge you differently than previous ones? Changing gears from being an inside-out corporate leader back to being to an outside-in coach serving the diverse challenges and requirements of our broad client base. First job? In high school, I was a store support associate at Kmart. This was a multifaceted role that included unloading trucks, ICEE accident cleanups and operating the ever-popular roving Blue Light Special machine. Best lesson from a mentor? Engage authentically with the people around you. Inspiring leaders don’t succeed because of what they do, but because of who they are. Civic activity that has impacted you the most? For the past 15 years I have volunteered with a local charity organization known as The World Hunger Auction that raises money through numerous events culminating with its annual namesake charity auction each August. WHA has raised over $1 million since its inception in 1984, with the bulk of the proceeds distributed to Heifer Project International focusing on ending world hunger and poverty. From a youth perspective, I much enjoyed my time as an assistant scoutmaster with the Boy Scouts of America. This role provided me the opportunity to mentor and instill positive values in the young men I served while sharing with them my passion for the great outdoors. Hobbies? When I am not traveling to visit clients, I am likely on the road in the RV with my wife and spoiled dachshund, Bella, looking for our next adventure.
