Managing teams to successful outcomes, in any industry or circumstance is his passion.

A strong advocate that to grow a company and create scale the number one priority is empowering and training people to make decisions. With proper systems, processes and controls in place, empowered well-trained people is the key to success. Scalable growth is not an accident and success is not luck.
