President & CEO
Prior to founding Team Excellence in 1980, Randy began his career as the training and development manager for an operating division of Tenneco, Inc. He later served as training manager for the Amerada Hess refinery on St. Croix in the U.S. Virgin Islands, and then joined the staff of an international psychological testing and consulting firm, where he served as a Senior Associate and Vice President.
Mr. Hopkins has spoken to professional organizations, conferences and corporations in the United States, Latin America and Europe about today's changing business environments, the evolving attitudes and expectations of employees, and a growing need to align organizational business objectives with the goals and individual career aspirations of employees. A major concern today, in Hopkins' opinion, is the need to focus more attention on the fundamentals of personal values and individual accountability as they relate to organizational success. In his book Team Covenant, Randy maps out with a case study his firm’s award-winning HR performance management process, The Team Development Strategy™. TDS is based on three proprietary and coordinated accountability assessment systems. This unique process is the foundation for the successful integration of Millennials into today’s complex multi-generational workforce.
