Brian Suszek is a business leader with more than 25 years of experience. Brian has always been a change agent that has led the successful turnaround of nearly every type of functional area within a business. Brian is passionate about the ability of excellent leadership to solve complex problems with creative and pragmatic solutions.
From entry level, as a cost estimator, Brian grew his responsibilities at Tweddle Group throughout his career to ultimately become the CEO. He has found that thriving organizations have consistent qualities. They have solid processes, are filled with great people and the people are aligned and held accountable through a culture based upon solid purpose, mission, vision and values. He has been able to consistently develop successful organizations based on that structure.
Brian believes business is mostly about getting the right people into your organization. Therefore, he has always put more focus on this aspect of business. That includes recruiting, hiring, personnel development, personnel improvement and team development. Great people are enabled by a high trust culture where creativity and accountability thrive through psychological safety. The organizations that he has been responsible for – organizations where no one said “That is not your job” or “That is not my job” – have generated consistent excellence because of that structure.
Brian has always invested heavily in coaching and mentoring his employees, colleagues, and other business leaders. Their achievement has been a source of great pride for him.
Brian holds a Bachelors of Science Degree in Printing Management from Western Michigan University. He is a prolific reader and lifelong learner on a wide array of topics. He is also an enthusiastic traveler and huge foodie via his wife’s diverse cooking, exhaustively sampling the great cuisine of Metro Detroit and sampling cuisines throughout his travels.
