Publisher's Description

Through the Fires is a triumphant comeback story in life and business. Robert Carr reflects decades of struggle that took him to the brink of financial ruin at age fifty. Carr would later make a fortune in the card payments industry only to lose almost everything in 2009 after one of the most devastating data breaches ever. Carr's story is a vulnerable and honest depiction of holding on and staying true to the values that in the end became pillars that supported the turbulent times and allowed him to breakthrough more than once to thrive in both business and life. This is a message of hope for aspiring young people just starting out in a career, the seasoned professional, and everything in between. Readers will cheer out loud for the way Carr shapes culture and fosters employee respect, incentive and growth and how that impacts motivation, productivity and, most importantly, loyalty
