The Boss

Scott Cowan

Age: 44

President, Century Cycles

Rocky Rivre, Peninsula, Medina, and Solon

Definition of a good boss: A good boss has to be the torch-bearer for the company and what it stands for. The boss has to be honest, trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, brave, clean and reverent -- just like a Boy Scout. He/she has to be everything to everybody.

Most important lesson learned: It's more difficult to be the boss than one would think. Life is relatively easy being an employee.

Best part of managing: It is rewarding to watch our team mature as our company has grown under my guidance.

Secret to success: Do unto others as you would have done unto yourself.

Quality you most admire: A positive attitude, a good work ethic and honesty.
