Onyeka Nchege

_MG_4714aI’m a husband, a father, a brother, a son and a friend.  For as far back as I can remember, I have always wanted to be in a place where I can impact others in a positive manner.  Driven by a desire to be a blessing to others, I view my life as a testament to how good God is and how faithful God is to his word.  Quite frankly, I live a life that is unexpected in so many ways yet I live a life that I have come to accept through my relationship with God.  My intent and sole purpose truly is to give back a measure of what God has provided to me.

Onyeka is the Chief Information Officer for Interstate Batteries, The Outrageously Dependable company whose purpose is to glorify God and be the First Choice in sustainable battery solutions in every community we serve. I have also served in leadership capacity as the former CIO of Coca Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated (CCBCC), the largest independent Coca-Cola bottler in the United States.

I spent a number of years in the Banking industry working for Wachovia, Fleet Mortgage Group and Check Free Corporation.  I transitioned to the manufacturing industry, where I provided strategic leadership to technical application software developers and business functional professionals in a multi-platform/multi-location environment for Pillowtex Corporation (Fieldcrest Cannon).

Hi onyeka
I am really so impressed by this blog. The writings, the lucidity in them makes you feel really good.All Five Points are wonderfully written and it inspires me instantly. “Feedback is the catalyst for change” is such a motivating line. “Success in your hands” is another gem of a line.
I have also read “Stop Digging that Hole”. Makes an impact straightaway.Have shared this on Twitter as well where the reactions are so good.
Will be reading more to give you honest reactions.

All extremely important comments in your “Leadership on the Go”. I was impressed with your comments at NCTA Conference in Raleigh, now further impressed by the article. That’s why I have been hoping to get time on your calendar. I’d like to connect on a business level.

I really enjoy your posts and learn something from each of them. The points on the F.R.A.N.K. discussion are ones I wish everyone knew. I’ve particularly enjoyed reading about your philosophy on giving back what you have been blessed with by God. I wholeheartedly agree and view my career as service.

Welcome to Texas and to Interstate Batteries!

All the best,

Onyeka Nchege What a simple yet communicable words you have. I find your one article with BTDT leadership interesting.
Your subscription button is now faulty. may like to check.
All is fine. I worked with Eveready batteries from 82 -09. What does Interstate Batteries deal with?
I would like to read most of your posts here.
All is well.
To do is to be.
