Faces in business: Cindy Sloan

Sloan

Title: Director of Operations

Company: Food Bank of Manatee

What was the best business advice you ever received?

Whatever job you are doing give it your all. Smile often and be kind to everyone but don't compromise your standards.

If you could choose another profession, what would it be?

Running the Food Bank is the best job I ever had. I can't imagine doing anything else. I have an excellent team of people I work with that all pull together to feed our friends and neighbors in Manatee County. It's a blessing.

What's the biggest risk you have taken in your career?

Not a business risk but a physical risk when I learned how to operate a fork lift here at the Food Bank.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you start?

I love Manatee County. I have been here 37 years. My kids and grandkids are here, so this is where I am happiest. I always wanted to see the Grand Canyon so if I'd take a trip it would be there, but I am sure I'd be just as happy once I was pulling into my own driveway.
