President and Chief Executive Officer
Kathy Snyder has been President and Chief Executive Officer of Exhortations, Inc. since its inception in November 2008. More than 35 years experience managing Ray Snyder’s professional collaboration with 125,000 managers in 10 nations has more than prepared her for the task of managing day-to-day operations and to also provide the visionary momentum behind Exhortations.
A 1977 graduate of Charleston Southern University, Kathy started two thriving small businesses and served as the CFO of three 501(C)(3) organizations, often managing more than million dollar budgets. She is a master of performance systems hosted by Inscape Publishing, Success Factors, Inc. and Consulting Psychologists Press.
Being a wife, mother of two adult daughters, and grandmother to five children are the most important roles in her life. She coordinates a weekly LifeGroup dinner and meeting in her home through The Church at LifePark. She is also a preschool leader and a “Mentor Mom” to the local MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) organization.
Ray Snyder, Principal Consultant for Exhortations, Inc., is a lifetime resident of Charleston, SC. He served as a Senior Consulting Partner with The Ken Blanchard Companies for more than two decades. Moving in 2003 from airports and hotels back to his roots in Charleston, he is a Professor of Business and Management at Trident Technical College, where he is the lead designer for the Managerial Communications Capstone Course for more than a thousand students.
He earned his MBA at Charleston Southern University and served as an officer in the US Air Force and the US Army Reserve. His leadership training and experience provides Ray with not only the knowledge and skills to be an effective leader, but with the wisdom to guide others on their path to reach beyond success toward significance.
Ray’s personal beliefs and values are prerequisites to his calm yet confident servant leadership. Primary roles of husband, father, grandfather, professor, and coach are “flavored” as a volunteer children’s ministry helper, church organist, community keynote speaker, LifeGroup leader, “Alpha Dog” to Rufus and occasional shoulder perch for their parrot, Emma.
