Rudolfo “Rudy” Lopez

Principal Consultant, Katapult Leadership Associates

My name is Rodolfo “Rudy” Lopez and I am from Houston, TX. I am an author, podcaster, motivational speaker, and leadership coach who helps individuals raise their self-awareness and reach their true potential. With a 20+ year career in senior leadership, security, and compliance roles at companies like The John Maxwell Team, Chevron, CITGO Petroleum, and LyondellBasell, I have developed a global perspective of best practices that enable businesses to position themselves for world-class performance. As a Founding Partner of The John Maxwell Team, I have spoken to audiences in business, government, and non-profit organizations in the United States, Latin America, and Africa. I am driven by my passion to help leaders improve their personal effectiveness and achieve a healthy core balance. I have trained leaders on a diverse range of topics like values-based leadership, vision and purpose, operational excellence, and personal development. Everything I do is intentionally aligned with my calling to multiply servant leaders. I strongly believe that those who are leaders must value people and add value to them. And a leader’s legacy cannot be called a success unless he/she has multiplied servant leaders and is succeeded by one. I have been married to Mary for 23 years and have two homeschooled sons Nick (16) and Sib (15).
