What would an entrepreneur say about you?
An entrepreneur would say that I’m more than just a financial partner; I’m a business partner. That requires you to be much more involved to ensure the success of the business.
What great business story inspires you?
One business story that inspires me is Autobus Dufresne, which is just as happy with our business relationship today as they were when we first started working together. And we are continuing to explore new business acquisition opportunities with them.
