Fastenal CEO to speak at Alexandria faith luncheon

Lee Hein
We are part of The Trust Project.

Lee Hein, the CEO of Fastenal, will speak about "Learning to Lead by Letting Go!" at the Unity Foundation's Faith at Work Lunch from noon-1 p.m. Friday, Aug. 19 at the Broadway Ballroom.

Hein will share life lessons learned throughout his 35-plus years at Fastenal. He says every principle of effective leadership can be found in God’s word but people must avoid the pitfalls.

He has served on the boards of several business and non-profit organizations in the Winona, Minnesota area.

Tickets cost $15 per person and can be purchased online or at the door. All attendees must register by Aug. 12 either at or RSVP via email: Those who have not registered in advance can no longer be guaranteed a meal.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
