Why Book Vinny Boles?
Major General Vincent Boles, USA (Ret.) was commissioned from the ARMY ROTC program at Niagara University as a Distinguished Military Graduate in 1976. He has served in a variety of assignments over a 33 year career, to include Command at every possible level and a number of combat deployments.
His ﬁnal Army assignment was as the Assistant Deputy Chief of Staff, G4 on the Army Staff in the Pentagon, where he oversaw Logistics Operations and Readiness for the 1.1 million Soldier force to include the surges into Iraq and Afghanistan.
Retiring in 2009 to Madison, Alabama, he established Vincent E. Boles, Inc., a leadership and logistics consulting practice. He’s been speaking and working with corporate and association groups around the nation and overseas, coaching them on the subject of teams’ “Best Getting Better”. His audiences have included: Deloitte, Fidelity, USAA, Ernst and Young, AIG, The United States Secret Service, The Boy Scouts of America and The American College.
He is the author of “4-3-2-1 Leadership…What America’s Sons and Daughters Taught Me on the Road from 2d Lieutenant to 2 Star General.” Now in its 3rd printing, a recent reviewer commented:
“He didn’t write this book exclusively for the military audience and he does us all a great service by putting these leadership lessons into one volume and sharing them.”
In 2011 he was inducted in the US Army Ordnance Corps and Niagara University ROTC Halls of Fame. He serves as an adjunct professor of Leadership and Logistics at the University of Alabama Huntsville and the Defense Acquisition University – South.
