In his book, Prepare for Leadership, Nile shares his personal journey of business success and lessons learned through times of struggle. After rising from manager trainee to become one of the top officers of Ralston Purina, Nile was fifty-five and unemployed following a company buyout. Within ten years of that low mark in his career he had built a company surpassing his former iconic employer in annual earnings and played a lead role in the creation of the biodiesel industry. He then directed the nascent industry from three million gallons of biodiesel production a year to over a billion gallons annually in just over a decade. Nile’s story of one man’s impact on American industry is not just impressive and inspiring, but historic.
Nile has been a Rotarian in Illinois, Ohio and Iowa. He will have copies of his book on hand for purchase at a special “Rotarian” discounted rate.
