Our Podcast is Officially Launched! Welcome to Hire Smarter with Tony Misura


The Misura Group Team is excited to launch our first Hire Smarter podcast. Our goal is simple: share our network of successful professionals in the industry and educating building industry leaders how to improve their best practices for hiring talent, while also helping professionals make better career building decisions.

In our first episode, I met up with Russ Kathrein at the LBM Strategies Conference in Austin, TX. LBM Strategies is a terrific conference for lumber and building material dealers selling to general contractors, a well-attended conference by some of the most recognized companies in the lumber and building materials industry. Russ Kathrein is the CEO of Alexander Lumber ($100m in sales, 10 locations, and 2 truss plants) and was presenting on Best Practices Developing the Next Generation of Leaders.

What key steps do you take to build your career to become a President or CEO? Russ’ journey offers young upcoming professionals some great insight. He consistently evaluated the company and leader he was working for and made career decisions, stretching and growing. The pattern of taking measured career risk is a Hire Smarter key trait when identifying talent.

Is your company struggling to recruit talent? Listen closely as we talk about mentorship and development as a key Hire Smarter best practice. We address the most significant obstacles leaders face while mentoring 20-somethings and the best steps to develop great mentoring leaders.
