On Tuesday morning, Mount Carmel CEO welcomed Wabash County Sheriff, Derek Morgan, as our guest speaker. Sheriff Morgan talked a little bit about his background and how he got into law enforcement, and highlighted some of the similarities and differences between managing a public sector department, like the Wabash County Sheriff's Office, and operating a business in the private sector. The differences, as it turns out, are not as stark as one might imagine; the exact same concepts and skill sets apply in both arenas. Derek always knew he wanted to be a cop. He served as a deputy for 11 years, before being elected to his first term as sheriff in 2014. After having been with the department for so long before taking the reins, "you think you know how everything is going to go," he explained, "but then you get into that position and you realize you didn't have a clue." Sheriff Morgan is now nearing the end of his second term in office and is preparing to run for a third term next year. During his time in office, he has overseen a modernization of the department's systems, an increase in the number of deputies, staff and vehicles at his disposal, major improvements to the buildings for which he is responsible, including the county jail and courthouse, and has worked find opportunities for grants and other sources of available funding to make his "business" operate in a safer, more efficient way. Many thanks to Sheriff Morgan for taking time to share his insights with our CEO team!
