For two years, Sam Smith was my direct report in his role as CEO of Mercy Ships. He is both a man of vision and integrity. He made everyone in the organization want to be the most they could be every day. He has an incredible ability to communicate to everyone within the organization their importance. I have never worked with any supervisor that pushed me more, or encouraged me more than Sam. His leadership allowed those in key positions to use their talent to succeed in their roles. During his tenure as CEO of Mercy Ships, the organization grew to provide services to the forgotten poor of West Africa in record numbers. In 2010, during one of the most challenging economic times in recent history, the organization increased fundraising over 2009 numbers. Sam’s leadership and vision was the guiding factor in the organization’s success. He will bring clarity of vision to any organization that he leads.
