MAY 2019 THE SHOP 37 fair, and that's important to us because I could not make money off a business that takes advantage of people. It's not in my nature, and I won't have anyone who works for me do that either." LOOKING FORWARD As Terry's Toppers has grown and diversified over the years, Moffat has also focused on her own personal devel- opment. Along with seeking mentors early on to better understand the vehicle accessory industry, Moffat is active in the community with the United Way and Salvation Army, and she serves as a member of the Executives' Association of Fort Lauderdale. Not only does this give her a chance to represent Terry's Toppers, but it also allows her to network with other busi- ness leaders and hone her management skills. "You have to think about the future and what's next," Moffat says. "As a member of a couple of business asso- ciations, I'm constantly trying to better myself as a leader and provide better support to the whole business." Although running a truck accessory shop wasn't originally in Moffat's plans 20 years ago, she has seamlessly taken to the business. She isn't afraid to chal- lenge the status quo, which keeps her shop evolving, and her commitment to serving her customers has helped Terry's Toppers navigate the competitive Florida market. "When I think about how we can evolve, I see us continuing to grow as a company in sales volume and adding new products to help serve our customers," she says. "The best part of my job is seeing happy customers, and when we put the customer first, we're in a position for good things to happen for our business."
