How might clients describe you? As a technical expert who is also a trusted partner in solving their problems. Clients I’ve worked with for any length of time know they can trust me to tell them what they need to hear in a given situation, even if it’s not what they want to hear.
What does “listen. think. deliver.” mean to you? It means we work hard to really understand what our clients’ unique needs are before jumping to conclusions and presuming to know what’s best. Only when we have a solid understanding of the criteria for success are we equipped to evaluate options and develop an optimal solution. But it’s not enough just to have a great idea; we’re not successful until the solution has been implemented in a way that meets both our clients’ and our corporate needs.
What are your 3 non-work passions? Family, faith and fly fishing.
What’s something that people might be surprised to know about you? I sang in a band in college, and I once sang in a friend’s wedding.
