The Nov. 9 edition of Louisville’s business newspaper, Business First, features a profile of Alpha Energy Solutions’ president Joe Rhodes. Reporter John Karman, not surprisingly, found Rhodes to be humble and driven to succeed.

From the story:

Humble in nature, Rhodes deflects most questions about his personal success, opting instead to give credit to his employees. He chalks up the success of his business to the company’s focus on customer service.

Later in the story, Rhodes is quoted this way:

“My job is really to be a cheerleader. My job is to go around and make everybody happy.”

As the company heads for a strong 2012 finish, in what is likely to be its best year, the emphasis on teamwork and customer service is paying dividends.
