“Remember that it’s a marathon, not a race.”
.…on how to become a CEO, via the Dallas Business Journal.
Sarracino joined Dallas-based Turvo—a supply chain platform specializing in collaborative transportation management software—as CFO in 2019. Earlier this month, the company relocated from Silicon Valley to Dallas and appointed Sarracino as CEO, replacing Scott Lang, who will remain at Turvo in an advisor role.
In a Q&A with the DBJ’s David Moreno, Sarracino said he aims to “plant a flag here permanently” and to build Turvo into “a billion-dollar company through M&As and innovation” in the next four or five years.
“My vision is to automate and unify the global supply chain,” he told the DBJ.
Sarracino noted that it’s taken him over 20 years to become a CEO, and offered other leaders advice on getting to the top spot.
“I would say to be diligent, work hard, and always do the right thing,” he told the DBJ. “Eventually, folks that you work with will notice and appreciate your contribution.”
