Perry Mandera is most commonly recognized for founding his company The Custom Companies Inc. His success, however, was not due to playing it safe. Although, he does not take unnecessary risks either. One of his causes for success is what he calls “Strategic Risk Taking”. This type of strategy has earned his great success in the field of logistics. His company is a transportation provider for family owned businesses and fortune 100 companies alike. Even though he is currently known for his entrepreneurial success, Perry Mandera had humble and heroic beginnings.
Once A Marine, Always A Marine
Perry Mandera doesn’t speak much about his life in the military service, but when he does, he speaks of it fondly. While he was in the armed forces, he served in the logistics field of the United States Marine corp. This is most likely part of the reason that he has so much success once he began his own entrepreneurial endeavors. Shortly after his honorable release from the military, he ran for office and became the youngest committeeman in the 29th ward of Chicago, Illinois for four years.
Continuing In Service After The Service
The selflessness of this Marine did not end after he got out of the service and not after becoming a committeeman, but bled into his charitable works. Once he became successful, he immediately began to give back to the community in continuous acts of charitable generosity. Even though his company is now over thirty years old, he is now being recognized for his charitable efforts to the less fortunate. His most notable works are exemplified with The Mercy Home For Boys And Girls. Perry Mandera continues his noble deeds, not only with already established charitable organizations, he also conducts a yearly campaign within his own company where he asks his employees to highlight people that they know that are in need of assistance. Mr. Mandera takes pride in his ability to assist his own people, especially during the holidays. He is more than happy to ease some of the stress of his employees and their family. Perry Mandera continues to be a hero in every possible way with anyone he meets in his life.
