What motto do you live by?
If we all do a little, it will make a great BIG difference.
Why did you feel executive recruiting was the right field for you?
Early on, I realized how inspiring and important the executive search business is. I get immeasurable job satisfaction in helping companies to grow and people to succeed.
If you had to change careers tomorrow, what job would you choose and why?
If I were not in executive search, I would enjoy leading and mentoring a group of men, facilitating conversations that promote hope, health, healing, humility, clarity, compassion and strength. Fortunately, in many ways, that’s what I already do every day.
