Four decades and six high-powered CFO jobs later, Ron Domanico is still practicing what his favorite Gies College of Business professor preached.
“In a time of concern about the sustainability of the earth and overpopulation, Julian Simon professed that people are the ultimate resource,” Domanico (BS ’80, management science; MBA ’81, finance) says from Dallas, where he’s the senior vice president and CFO for The Brink’s Company.
“If nurtured, people can produce the greatest economic return. I believe that all people are intrinsically valuable. I recognize that different positions have different values, but believe that each person is equally valuable.
“It has been a belief system — and an economic model — that has served me well over a 40-year career.”
You can say that again. Among the companies for which Domanico has served as CEO: Kraft, Nabisco International, AHL Services, Caraustar Industries, Home Depot Supply and now Brinks.
