Hello everyone! I’m Adam Runquist, another one of the writers lending my thoughts to Business Pundit.
You’re probably wondering how I got here and what the heck I’m all about. Here it goes…
Last year I became virtually acquainted with Rob May through my readership of businesspundit.com and contributions to his other blog project, Outside the Valley. A number of comments and email exchanges later, here I am.
Understanding me can best be summed up by one underlying character trait – I am a huge business geek. A very proud one at that. The books I read, the blogs I follow, the conversations I enjoy, and virtually ever thought that enters my head revolves around business. While some find salvation in art, music, or religion – I find mine in the chaotic intersection of ideas, people, and commerce.
By day I collect a steady pay check as a global marketing manager for an industrial technology company. This usually involves herding ideas, engineers, smooth talking salesmen, and business strategies. In my spare time I collect not-so-steady pay checks flexing my entrepreneurial muscle on a wide variety of side-projects. While these endeavors often involve some brick walls, and notable failures, they keep my blood flowing.
While I have a number of thoughts on business, you can expect me to interject my thoughts on business strategy, marketing, business news, value investing, and the odd stock pick. As I am incredibly excited to exchange ideas, feel free to comment on my posts and/or email at adamrunquist [at] gmail [dot] com.
Look forward to the adventure.
