You have experience managing projects from start to finish, and you instill confidence in your colleagues that you’ll get the job done.
You love to consume the news and stay up-to-date with current trends, especially within your clients’ industries.
You’re a “glass half full” person who views challenges as great opportunities to grow and move the needle for your clients.
