Discover the inspiring story of how Crystal Maggelet unexpectedly ended up as CEO of her father’s company, guiding Flying J back from bankruptcy and on to great success—all during the throes of the Great Recession of the late 2000s. Through it all, Crystal succeeded by maintaining the core philosophy handed down through generations of the Call family—the importance of building value that will last.

Cowritten by Crystal herself, Building Value toLast compiles accounts from her own recollections and personal journals, as well as from interviews with key personnel.

Crystal Maggelet is CEO and president of FJ Management Inc., a diversified family business, which includes subsidiaries Maverik, a convenience store chain, and the Big West Oil petroleum refinery, and a minority stake in Pilot Flying J, the largest travel center operator in the United States.
