What inspires you about your job?
Having a small role in people’s personal success, whether they are colleagues or clients, provides real purpose to my work.
What particular qualities do you contribute to the Sage team and the client experience?
I believe founders can provide a unique competitive advantage for the company if they channel their strengths, perspective, and energy in the right direction. I try to lead by example, by working hard, being ethical, caring, and respectful.
