About The Author
Born in 1930, Jim Haslam played football and became Team Captain at the University of Tennessee. Haslam played on the famous 1951 National Championship football team led by coaching legend and mentor General Robert R. Neyland, whose renowned Game Maxims inspired Haslam’s own views of life and leadership in family, business, and in the art of giving back. Upon arriving in Korea, he was promoted to Company Commander at the age of twenty-three. After returning home from the military, he started a small oil company in 1958 with only one gas station. Pilot Oil Company would go on to become one of the country’s largest private companies with over 28,000 team members serving customers at over 700 locations nationwide.
