Troy Meachum of ACR Supply isn’t afraid to share his religious beliefs. While some might consider such transparency a recipe for disaster, ACR’s chief encouragement officer makes a case for sincere faith-based leadership. Jason chats with Troy about integrating his religious convictions into everyday operations and how those beliefs have impacted employee morale, customer satisfaction, and the company’s bottom line. In fact, ACR has grown its revenue from $3m in 1997 to over $33m this past year. Perhaps it comes down to geography. While many business owners north of the Mason-Dixon line keep their religious beliefs private, those headquartered in the American South tend to be more transparent about their faith––on company websites, at branch locations, and in conversation. ACR Supply, which makes its home in Raleigh, NC, proves the point. Faith, says Troy, is the foundation upon which his personal and professional success rests. There’s no compartmentalizing the two. Troy lives his faith with intention, whether by engaging with fellow HARDI members or championing initiatives through ACR Cares, his company’s outreach organization. “I'm 60 years old, actually 61 on Friday, and I'm really starting to hit my stride just from a ministry perspective,” he says, looking ahead and placing his faith squarely in the future.
