A leader with true vision never leaves a company the same way he found it—even if it was doing alright to begin with. Take the case of Thad Pryor and Children of America, for instance. When Thad Pryor took over as the President of this company, it was doing pretty well, with more than twenty locations scattered throughout the Northeast. But Thad Pryor believed that the services offered by Children of America were simply too special to be sequestered to just one small part of the company.
And so Thad Pryor launched what would become known as one of the most audacious and ambitious expansion programs in the industry’s history—though also one that is strategic and carefully-planned. Under the leadership of Thad Pryor, the company has embarked upon a three-year initiative to build from 20 locations into 75! And that’s just for starters: The long-term goal for Children of America is to have 330 locations, all over the country!
Thus far, Thad Pryor’s expansion is moving forward quite nicely; check out this list of states with Children of America locations:
- New Jersey
- New York
- North Carolina
Given that each of these states tends to have several Children of America locations, it’s clear to see that the company has come a long way since the days of just 20 locations in the Northeast. And Thad Pryor is just getting started; the expansion program marches ever forward, with no lapse in quality or lowering of standards. Needless to say, Thad Pryor has established himself as a leader with vision—and the fact that his vision is to bring Children of America to more and more families across the country is good news for everyone!
