Brigadier General Len “Loni” Anderson IV, United States Marine Corps, steps into Carey’s office this week where they talk about leading through uncertainty, rebounding from adversity, surprising career paths, and the importance of ‘doing the work’—not just at work, but on yourself as well.
Anderson has completed multiple combat deployments as an F/A-18 pilot launching from an aircraft carrier, showcased the professionalism and teamwork of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps as a demonstration pilot with the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, led large operations in the Marine Corps Reserve both in-theater and in CONUS, and is also a 757 Captain with FedEx Express.
Along the way, Anderson went to Hollywood, had a role in a couple of blockbuster movies, and is a member of the Screen Actors Guild.
Len is currently on active duty with Marine Corps Forces Cyberspace Command, and also just qualified for the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in his late 40’s after never biking for more than 30 minutes just a few years ago.
Pour yourself a cup of coffee, put on your headphones, and prepare to be inspired to take action.
