Dudley Slater learned firsthand how to inspire and lead people. He co-founded Integra Telecom, Inc. and served as its CEO for fifteen years, growing the company from nine to over 2,000 employees. He transitioned the company from a start-up to national prominence as one of the ten largest fiber-based telecommunications companies in the United States, generating over $600 million in revenue. Attributing his company’s success to its people, Dudley became fascinated by the behavioral traits of leaders who successfully create companies that defy national norms and surveys, that indicate some seventy percent of US workers hate their job, and find little meaning in their work. Partnering with other leaders of iconic, nationally recognized organizations, Dudley refined his knowledge and techniques to create the practical, everyday tenets of Fusion Leadership. He earned a bachelor of science in geophysics from UCLA and a master’s degree in business administration from the Harvard Business School. Dudley has two beautiful grown children (Toryn and Kathrina) and lives with his wife of twenty-nine years, Laurie, in Portland, Oregon, and in New York, New York.
