About George Yardley
While most working adults have had more than one job, very few have experienced career changes as radical as that of George Yardley. In fact, there is really no explainable link between this former NBA Hall-of-fame player and his subsequent decision to become a manufacturer’s representative for engineered products. (We’ve tried to find one – it doesn’t exist.)
