Entrepreneur for BDA
August 9, 2013
No company or CEO can prepare for the kind of tragedy I found myself faced with two years ago. Susan Brockert had been with my business for fifteen years and had worked in just about every department. She was thoughtful, kind and always full of joy. Most of all, she was like family. In May 2011, during an annual celebratory staff trip to Kona, Hawaii, the unthinkable happened. Coworkers heard screams from Susan’s hotel room, but by the time security broke down the door, it was too late. Susan had been brutally beaten to death by her boyfriend.
