The Value I Bring...
Throughout my career I have been driven by my intense curiosity for what makes a business great. Oftentimes I feel like I’m on a treasure hunt following clues from various sources to track down underappreciated, overlooked, or new-to-me, high-quality businesses with compelling growth opportunities.
