Gary Morton graduated from West Point with honors and had a five-year career as a tank officer, the highlight of which was being part of an extraordinary unit that achieved unprecedented results at the US Army's grueling National Training Center—the only unit to ever win every simulated battle it fought. Morton completed a master's degree, also with honors, from the University of Southern California, and transitioned out of the Army to medical-device manufacturer Stryker, where he held positions of increasing responsibility in project management, engineering, R&D, operations, and leadership, including twelve years as vice president and general manager of the EMS equipment business, becoming the youngest VP at the company. Today, he is retired from Stryker and lives with his wife in the Midwest, where he writes and invests. His new book, "Commanding Excellence: Inspiring Purpose, Passion, and Ingenuity through Leadership That Matters," will be available in September 5th, 2017 on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, BooksaMillion, Indiebound, and 800 CEO Read (for bulk orders) along with other fine booksellers.
