Meet Our Keynote Speaker
Ashleigh Walters and her family relocated to the Rust Belt town of Erie, Pennsylvania, in an attempt to revive her husband's family's 54-year-old business. When she assumed the role as president, the company had lost sight of its mission and family-centric core values. She used the problem-solving skills she obtained while earning her Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from Auburn University and was able to change the company culture by using a coach-approach leadership style. Today, Onex is a thriving, employee-owned enterprise. Ashleigh regularly shares her story with fellow leaders and encourages them to "make things better" by continuously improving processes.
