What would an entrepreneur say about you?
They would say I'm always in solution mode and that I'm a partner attentive to entrepreneurs' needs.
What great business story inspires you?
I'm inspired by the story of a community taking over a plant which made a considerable contribution to the regional economy but was shut down. Seeing dedicated people fully committed to give the business a new lease of life and create rewarding jobs... that's very inspiring.
