I have experience negotiating, closing complicated deals while keeping a "win/win" approach.

I have bias for action. Speed matters in business. Many decisions and actions are reversible and do not need extensive study, therefore I take calculated risks. I have strong business judgment and good instincts.

I am an owner. I think long term and don’t sacrifice long-term value for short-term results. I act on behalf of the entire company, beyond just my own team. I never say “that’s not my job”.

I start with the customer and work backwards. I work vigorously to earn and keep customer trust. Although I pay attention to competitors, I obsess over customers.

I operate at all levels, stay connected to the details and audit frequently. No task is beneath me.

I am obligated to respectfully challenge decisions when I disagree, even when doing so is uncomfortable or exhausting. I have conviction and I am tenacious. I do not compromise for the sake of social cohesion.

Once a decision is determined, I commit wholly. I focus on the key inputs for my business and deliver them with the right quality and in a timely fashion. Despite setbacks, I rise to the occasion and never settle.
