The Hike – A fictional story that brings all of the Transformational Leadership principles to life
Ford is known as a man who can solve complex business issues, with straightforward practical solutions, while maintaining his focus on the people that serve the organization. After completing a Business Management degree from Texas A&M University, he jumped into becoming an owner/operator of a small apparel company named CC Creations. This small company grew to the publicly traded, Brazos Sportswear Corporation. The company grew from a few small individual investors to a $300 million operation. In 1997, Ford and his family moved to Cincinnati to serve as the CEO of this growing company.
Ford eventually left his role as CEO to help grow and develop other companies through business consulting. He specialized in acquisitions, turnarounds, mergers and leadership development, beginning with participants understanding personal constraints. And so began the tugging on his heart to see lives and businesses transformed. Clients have ranged from small, private firms to multi-million dollar corporations.
Ford was blessed with a vision for the Cincinnati region and beyond, which evolved around his desire to see lives transformed. It was from that vision that birthed Transformation Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, a city-wide process focused on uniting God’s people in businesses, churches, government, education, media, families, arts and entertainment, through prayer, plans and actions to spread the gospel of Jesus in this region and beyond. Due to a rising of market demands and passion to transform individuals and organizations, he founded FSH Strategy Consultants, Inc. The company is currently comprised of team members that provide leadership training and strategic consulting across a variety of industries, for profit and not for profit, domestically and internationally. Individuals and teams achieve transformation by addressing and removing personal and professional constraints. He is now known and dearly loved for his passion to see lives and organizations better equipped to serve their communities and families.
