World Fuel Services Build-A-Bike Chicago, IL World Fuel Services met in a gorgeous wood paneled room at Chicago’s luxurious Four Seasons hotel for a small but heartfelt Build-A-Bike ® event. Fifteen executives from World Fuel Services met to compete in three teams. World Fuel Services is a Fortune 100 company and a global leader in fuel logistics. The executives were from different areas of marketing and finance.

They were a competitive and fun group of high achievers. But that didn’t stop them from creating silly cheers with, in some cases, wild choreography! Then the three teams answered puzzles and obtained bike parts. They ran back and forth to the judges. Each team wanted to be the first to build their bike. The trouble was, the first team was sent back to fix a tire that wasn’t secured safely. No matter. This wasn’t a contest of speed, this was a chance for executives to join together to build bikes for three lucky kids.

Rose Nodal of the McCormick YMCA brought those three children. The Y is close by and the children lived in the area. One of them had never had a bicycle before. It was kind of the Four Seasons staff to let the excited kids ride their bikes through the carpeted hallways!
