Integra CEO/President Kevin O'Hara tells us what he's reading.
O'Hara, who travels frequently for work, says books are a great way to learn more about the places he visits. “They help me learn from the experiences of others, and they serve as my favorite form of relaxation.” Although he delves into the occasional business book, O’Hara prefers to read mysteries, autobiographies and biographies. The latter tend to focus on historical, political or business leaders. “I enjoy reading about figures I hold in high regard, as well as those that I do not care for or respect, because I can learn just as much from either profile,” O’Hara says. “And a good mystery is a great way to take my mind off the myriad of things that typically go through my head before bed, and a perfect way to pass idle time while traveling.”
