Joe Galindo

Chair

Joe founded 6th Man Executive Coaching, a strategic management and consulting firm in Dallas, Texas where he has served as executive coach, professional facilitator, and management consultant.  Over the past 10 years, Joe has successfully facilitated thousands of strategic retreats, planning meetings, and small group forums for well over 500 organizations – both business and non-profit entities – ranging from local to global in scope.  The resultant strategies and action steps addressed organizational issues and processes, provided coaching and mentoring of executives (in both business and spiritual dimensions), and developed key leadership personnel for his clients. Joe’s unique ability to facilitate, listen, and then capture vital elements of an issue or meeting, reliably produce tangible, strategic direction proven to be of great value for his clients.

 

Earlier, Joe served as Vice-President of Operations for two different companies over a 15-year period, both of which were over $25 million in yearly revenues. This experience has given Joe great understanding of the processes and operations that are needed to effectively run small to medium size companies. In addition, he has built a multitude of solid relationships with business and non-profit leaders across America.

 

Joe and Kim, his wife of 35 years, have two adult sons, Zachary and Bart. Joe graduated in 1975 from SMU, where he played varsity basketball, and has resided in Dallas, Texas for the past 40 years. His interests include people, reading, travel, sports, and hosting/facilitating gatherings for people. His favorite quotes are:

     – “We need to be reminded more so than we need to be instructed.” C.S. Lewis

     – “We are either green and growing or dead and rotting.” Unknown

     – “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Jesus Christ

 

Joe’s greatest passion is to see the Kingdom of God advanced through business leaders and the businesses where God has strategically place them.

Mr. Petersen has served on a variety of industry and charitable boards including service as President of the Dallas Multifamily Builders Council and Chairman of the Multi-Housing Council for the National Association of Home Builders.

Tom Hawes

Chair

Tom is excited to expand The C12 Group’s reach to Christian chief executives in the northern counties of the Dallas Metroplex. Following a 28-year career at Texas Instruments, Tom founded a consulting practice for small-to-medium size companies focused on business strategy and competitive intelligence. He is the author of the Strategically Thinking blog.

Tom’s experiences are deep and varied. He led product development teams, worked on business growth strategies and created a systems architecture team for a $500M business education technology firm. His key interests were examining how to effect change in a successful organization and how to mentor others through those changes. More recently, he spent several years in a $4B Wireless semiconductor business where the focus was on software strategy and competitive intelligence. Tom created a division-wide competitive intelligence (CI) program that tracked 15 major competitors, established standards for doing CI, and completed many studies for senior management.

Along with his wife, Gerri, Tom has a passion for learning and applying God’s lessons to all aspects of life. His entire family is involved in missions work around the world. Tom serves as a Deacon and teacher at his church in Allen, Texas. His life verses are Jeremiah 29:11-13 (ESV):

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.”
