Todd Talbot, president of Fluidmaster Inc., was recognized for excellence in executive leadership – cultural change, at the 2016 awards ceremony hosted by the CSUF Center for Leadership on May 6.
"Todd is the key change agent for our company," said Robert AndersonSchoepe, Fluidmaster CEO and chairman. "He sets the tone from the top and generates an energy level here that has enabled us to significantly grow the business."
Talbot was recognized by The Center for Leadership, which is housed in the Mihaylo College of Business and Economics, California State University Fullerton.
In his introduction at the awards event, Tim Ryan, president and CEO of the Honda Center, characterized Talbot as '’leading by example with a relentless approach to winning” and indicated that “things really started to thrive again at Fluidmaster in 2011 after Talbot came on board.” While honoring the company's heritage and focusing on its vision, the company has doubled in less than five years.
"Todd exhibits strength of character that has empowered the vigor and growth of the company over the last five years," said John Carpenter, Fluidmaster board member. "His balanced approach to executive leadership, change management and community stewardship, all while maintaining a true sense of humility and humor, is admirable."
"Our approach with employees is both open book and open door with two of our key management attributes tied to communications and humbleness," summed up Talbot while receiving the award. "I'm honored to receive this award and thank the Fluidmaster team for their great efforts and results in managing the company's outstanding service to our customers."
