Perry Mandera’s Transportation Life

Perry Mandera, the CEO and founder of The Custom Companies, Inc, has been highly involved in the transportation industry since 1976. In the many years since then, he has acquired a vast amount of experience throughout its arena. He began adult life by spending several years with the Marines. He credits his time during these years with his ability to work well as a team. After his honorable discharge, he began his career with the trucking industry. In 1984 he added politics to his resume, becoming elected Republican Ward Committeeman for the 26th ward in Chicago.

 

Mandera is a very committed philanthropist. This philanthropic concentration extends to his community, the entire nation, and the entire world. He most often gives to charities that help needy children. He does this by providing these organizations with clothing and transportation services. He is so passionate about giving that he conducts an annual campaign within his own company to the end of encouraging his employees to give. And when anyone accepts his encouragement, he enlists their help to look for other groups and individuals that need aid.

 

Mandera is deeply revered in the business world for his sterling business leadership. In 2000 he was honored by the Illinois Transportation Association on its list of “Top 100 American Transportation Executives of the Millennium.” To do his work, Mandera always utilizes the very latest logistics software and employs the very best in-house programmers. In order to ensure that all of his clients get the best service, he is always careful to use the very best the tools, resources, and personnel in everything he does.

 

He credits his religious upbringing for instilling in him a passion for honest work and a deep love for his fellow man. He also credits getting the wisdom that has come with age and experience. He says the most enduring of these learning experiences took place in his growing up years before he even joined the Marines. Today he says it really helps to have a full day of work that he only sleeps about four hours a night.
