OCTOBER 14, 2014 – Kevin Hancock, President and CEO of Hancock Lumber Company, captivated the 2014 Sebago Summit audience during his keynote speech held at St. Joseph’s College.

Kevin brought an exciting energy and perspective to this year’s “Power in Partnership” theme, sharing his personal lean journey and its positive impact on his business, family, and community relationships. Highlights from the day were the concept of transcending the grindstone and 4 key points to improve performance and reduce work:
- Everyone leads!
- Eliminate waste!
