Q & A

  • Q: Trust. Experience. Independence. Results. What does this mean to you?

    Trust enables us to become advisors rather than service providers. Trust isn’t possible without experience or independence. When we can become a trusted advisor, we can drive results – those are for the client.

  • Q: What drives you?

    Helping the people behind the deal. I achieve personal satisfaction when we work with great people and produce exceptional results, establishing lifelong relationships along the way.

  • Q: What are you passionate about?

    Any banker can sell a great business. My goal is to approach each transaction differently – avoid the playbook and take a creative approach based on the situational selling attributes – this is what yields great results for any business.
