On this week’s episode, we’re joined by Tim Gase, Co-Owner and CEO of the Peerless Saw Company. Tim has been very successful in owning and leading an industrial manufacturing company in the heart of the midwest and has also positioned himself to be able to back away from his business on his own terms.
Through his career, Tim has only ever worked for two companies. He began at Cooper Industries in Dayton, Ohio, where he held 8 job titles over 12 years in addition to earning his MBA, before transitioning to Peerless Saw, where he has been for the last 25 years. Tim currently lives in Columbus, Ohio with his wife, Jan, and enjoys fishing, hunting, building habitats for wildlife, and traveling across North and Central America.
We chat about Tim’s experience as a CEO with Peerless, as well as:
- His biggest challenges and successes as a business owner
- Maintaining a highly profitable business in a mature industry
- Keeping an open mind and welcoming opportunity
- The importance of having an intimate understanding of your business’ financials
- And more
