What would an entrepreneur say about you?
That I’m committed, dedicated and involved in everything I do. Every business model is unique, and their different characteristics drive me to dig down for an understanding of a company’s needs so I can find the solutions that let entrepreneurs achieve their ambitions
What great business story inspires you?
I’ve had the opportunity to work with several companies headed by model shareholders in recent years. The companies that stand out to me are the ones that innovate and succeed in adapting to market demands, in spite of the issues and challenges they face. A good management team needs long-term vision, leadership and the desire to outdo themselves year after year.
