Corporate Operations, Author, Coach, Leadership Development
All Sectors

Cutting his teeth at companies that include Sysco, Baronet Corp, Vistar/PFG, and CDI among others, Martin Dones has combined the corporate vision of a CEO and the strategic thinking of a CFO to be a proven operational leader with $100 million+ companies.

Value to Shareholders

Martin’s value to corporate shareholders is his uncanny ability to rein in cost while increasing corporate profits. He accomplishes this through a transparent communication style with the masses. Typically, an incoming operations executive will work in a silo, focused only on bottom line results. Well, Martin understands that to get the greatest bottom line results, he needs to get the best productivity out of his employees. To do this, Martin solves the change-management culture-shock through an inspirational leadership style, invigorating people to wake up every day and want to come to work!

Martin attributes his success to a philosophy of “training people to take his job”. This philosophy has led to ongoing awards including Sysco’s Presidents Award and Vistar/PFG’s Best Operating Company of the Year Award and Best Operations Manager of the Year Award.

Inspirational Story

Martin has parlayed his success as a coach, educator and author. He has spoken at the Bronx Juvenile detention center and the Boys and Girls Club and became an author so he could share his story with the world. Bronx Boys, is an inspirational story about a young man’s unwavering desire and “will” to always do a little bit more, be a little bit better than they were the day before.
