Many famous entrepreneurs talk about the necessary traits that a strong business developer has to self-teach in order to become successful. Business is like a family, and the entrepreneur has the responsibility of protecting it and revamping the people and the business model to achieve success.
This is particularly the case to the entrepreneur Gregory James Aziz, who is the Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of a company called National Steel Car, which is nowadays known by every other company in the railroad market.
National Steel Car is, nowadays, leading the industry as a railroad freight car manufacturer, but this wasn’t always the case.
When Greg James Aziz bought the company, it was in an awful financial state, and the competition was miles ahead of National Steel Car because of a lack of vision from the previous owners.
The new entrepreneur, CEO and Chairman and the company was the main reason why National Steel Car is so successful right now, as it was a fragile business when he found it.
Today, it is evident that the company is very successful, as it has over a hundred years of presence in the market and Greg J Aziz has been in the leadership of the team since 1994, twenty-three years ago.
All of his skills as an influential and responsible entrepreneur weren’t acquired during his years in the University, but instead, they were developed during Greg Aziz’ years working with the business of his family, Affiliated Foods.
Affiliated Foods had hired Greg Aziz to work with the administration team very early in his career, and the competence and performance of the young entrepreneur were strikingly apparent: He had developed business strategies and a business model that increased drastically the presence of Affiliated Foods in the exterior market.
Because of his high performance, Greg Aziz understood that he had a natural talent for business management and economics, so he started to self-teach some advantageous leadership skills that would be used later to lead National Steel Car and bring it back to the old potential that it had.
After acquiring the company and becoming the CEO of National Steel Car, Greg Aziz studied the market and the competition, understood what his group was doing wrong, and he revitalized the whole business model to modernity.
Greg Aziz lives in Hamilton, Ontario, and received his degree from the Economics School at the Western University. Most of his assets, though, he acquired through experience.
