Cory Shively

My Technology degree has given me the background to achieve things I only dreamed I could achieve. With patience, devotion, and a lot of hard work, our small company has developed from a partnership of four Purdue alumni to a thriving business with international recognition.

Cory attributes his success to lessons learned while growing up — from his father,“it’s not worth doing, if you aren’t going to do it right,” and from his mother,“include human kindness in every- thing you do in life.” He also includes his partners’ contributions and his wife’s support in the quotient of success.

“I would not be where I am today if we didn’t have such a good team of people working together,” Cory says.“This team synergy has been the base of success for our company. Also, my wife’s support was there through all the long days.”

Cory demonstrated his strong character and talent even prior to his college and career days as an Eagle Scout, leadership scholarship recipient, and then the recipient of a technical illustration award from SIGGRAPH, Alpha chapter (Purdue). He is currently involved with the Order of the Arrow – Boy Scouts of America, the Lafayette Home Builders Association, and the National Association of Home Builders.

Cory’s partner role at CG Visions has changed as the company has grown from project manager and network administrator to HR manager,CAD designer and salesman. CG Visions of Lafayette, IN has collaborated with some of the largest U.S. home builders and international building companies on projects. Among past projects are commerical light gauge steel designs, residential plans, option conditioning for production home builders, and architectural software customization.

Cory will continue his educational journey this fall as a student in the Krannert Executive MBA program. This life change will be accompanied by a new title of “dad.” Cory and his wife, Shylo, are expecting the arrival of their first child in May.
