His diverse experience—spanning industries, business domains, and cultures—provides valuable perspective in the face of challenge and complexity. He combines that experience with a “think like an owner” mentality and well-honed leadership skills to get things done. Clients especially appreciate his tenacity and commitment to fight for their interests every step of the way.
