Bobby Lewis is the CEO of Lewis Cabinet Specialties. After interviewing his two brothers, Beau and Brady, Bobby brings his unique perspective about how he motivates his work force and drives amazing growth to their business. Bobby is passionate about many things, but mostly about people. He is driven to connect with the people that work for Lewis Cabinet Specialties and get to their ‘why’. This desire to connect with and grow people is the driving force behind their extreme success. 

Bobby believes that as business owners, we must first look at why we are doing what we do. He truly believes if you don’t put people first, ahead of profits, then you are going to have a hard time achieving success. With success being a relative term, I took it that the Lewis family measures success in how they treat and grow the people around them. Being successful on that primary metric will lead to the financial success we also desire as business owners.  

Lewis cabinet went as far as hiring a ‘dream manager’. The role for this person is to find out what each and every person's ‘why’ is, and how to put them on the path to achieving it. Although this has backfired on them on occasion, they have always been paid back in spades as becoming one of the premier places to work in their area.
