How Traeger Found its Spark

November 15, 2018 By Dave Chase

Entrepreneurship has increasingly become the hot career recently.  Many of us are trying our hand at it and frequently we look around to see who’s doing it right.  For me, a shining example of who’s been doing it right for years is our friend Jeremy Andrus at Traeger Grills.

It may make him uncomfortable but I’m letting it be known that he is officially my man-trepreneur crush…and I know I’m not alone.  Not only is he a fantastic entrepreneur but he makes my top 10 man’s man list.

Jeremy is an example of one who is doing it right in and out of the office.  For Jeremy, there isn’t a difference between his office persona and his out-of-office persona…and I applaud him for that.  CEO.com’s interview of Jeremy recently was a great reminder of why he’s been so successful in growing a vibrant business, filled with people who love the culture, and maintaining life balance.  Bravo Jeremy.
