A CEO’s Perspective: Redefining Our Future

John C. Sheptor, President and CEO
Imperial Sugar Company
Sugar Land, Texas

John C. Sheptor is recognized as a visionary leader in the global manufacturing and supply chain industries. He is known for achieving strong organizational growth, expanding markets across borders, and building resourceful teams that succeed in the most challenging of times.

In February, 2008, a dust explosion at Imperial Sugar’s Port Wentworth, Georgia refinery caused the loss of lives, injuries and substantial damage to the facility.  Mr. Sheptor was touring the facility at the time of the incident, narrowly escaping injury. He participated that evening and for many days thereafter in the emergency response and search for survivors.

Since then, the company has transformed itself, making numerous safety and health changes, including rebuilding the Port Wentworth refinery with new technology. Mr. Sheptor will share lessons learned about change, as he led Imperial Sugar through what he calls the longest and most memorable year of his life.

Immediately following his presentation, Mr. Sheptor will host a 20 minute Q&A session.  Attendees who stay will be asked to move to the front.
