Biggest recent success: “Coming back together after COVID. While not mandating office presence, we have adopted the mantra of ‘Better Together,’ whether in the office or with a client, while still allowing flexibility and structured or remote work arrangements. Technology gives us freedom, but you can’t replace all you can learn at the water cooler. Our company is better and stronger than ever.”

Fun fact: “I bicycled across Scotland. Sounds adventurous, but Scotland is really not that wide west to east.”

As you enter your office, what would you choose to be your walk-up or theme song: “‘Glory Days’ by Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band”

Biggest risk you’ve ever taken: “Eschewing less risky alternatives, deciding to change my college major to accounting in my junior year, then moving with my wife to Harrisonburg, Virginia, on our last dollar. Outside of a sister-in-law who lived there for one year after we arrived, we knew no one. Things worked out fine and it was a great experience.”
