Albuquerque Journal - - BUSINESS OUTLOOK -

Gen­eral man­ager Zia Nat­u­ral Gas Co. Rui­doso Downs As a leader, who are you in­spired by?

I am in­spired by in­di­vid­u­als who have a vi­sion and are able to work through the many daily dis­trac­tions to achieve that vi­sion, such as John Rockefeller and War­ren Buf­fet.

What do you con­sider to be the top is­sue or con­cern fac­ing New Mex­ico to­day? Why?

New Mex­ico must con­tinue to fo­cus on the growth of pri­vate sec­tor jobs. To achieve this, our state needs ed­u­ca­tional pro­grams that not only en­cour­age col­lege de­grees, but also tech­ni­cal ed­u­ca­tion and cer­tifi­cate pro­grams.

What has in­spired you or been the high­light of your Lead­er­ship New Mex­ico ex­pe­ri­ence so far?

Lead­er­ship New Mex­ico has pro­vided the op­por­tu­nity to ex­change ideas and share best prac­tices with other busi­ness lead­ers par­tic­i­pat­ing in the pro­gram.
