YPO Gold member and Certified Forum Facilitator Terry Plochman brings a broad background and a great deal of energy to his work with YPO Forums. Five elements guide his work: a business background, education and training in psychology, deep experience with YPO Forums, an ongoing appetite for learning, and a sense of humor.
Terry was the fourth-generation President and owner of Plochman, Inc., a mustard manufacturer that he sold successfully in 2010. His education in psychology started in college, and he built on that background with psychotherapist training in Hakomi Interactive Psychology, training with the Matrix Leadership Institute and other work.
Terry has held a number YPO positions locally, regionally and internationally. Those positions include International Board member, Executive Committee member, and International Forum Chairman. He is currently on the executive committee for the YPO Global Family Business Network.
Terry received YPO’s highest honor – the Ray Hickok Award - for his work with Forums. He was further honored through YPO’s creation of the annual Terry Plochman award, given to the top chapter Forum Officer worldwide.
Terry received a bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Brown University and an MBA from Harvard Business School. The Plochmans have three grown children and live overlooking the Delaware River in rural New Jersey.
