By Paul Krutko, SPARK

Ann Arbor SPARK CEO Podcasts: Conversations on Economic Opportunity capture the flavor of my one-on-one conversations with over one hundred key economic leaders in the region, including private sector CEOs, elected and appointed public sector leaders, and the executive leadership of key non-profit and academic institutions. The podcast series is designed to not only highlight that expertise, but also make it available to others who could benefit from the wisdom those business leaders can share.

Albert M. Berriz is president, CEO, board member and co-owner of McKinley Inc. Albert's simple, but powerful, philosophy is "I invest in people. That's more important than any investment you make in real estate."

In my conversation with Albert, he talks about why McKinley focuses on people first then real estate and the culture and core values within his organization. He discusses the responsibilities of companies to give back and the strengths and challenges of Ann Arbor.
