“It’s my job to make sure that everything goes well.”
And as one of the founders of the firm (along with Rob and Michael), I tend to insert myself into all aspects of individual projects, overall planning, and company-wide management. Not enough to make our team neurotic, but just enough to ensure they encourage me to use up my vacation days. (OK, maybe just enough to make them mildly neurotic.)
On a typical engagement, I work with the project team to develop strategy. I also spend a good deal of time working personally with clients to implement the solutions that we recommend and to dream up with them the big, new wonderful.
At the end of the day, I’m just a heartbreakingly handsome and unbearably kind guy ISO good, collaborative, long-term relationships with my team and with our clients. When I’m not working with relentless speed and vigor, I like doing yoga in the sunshine, taking long walks on the beach, listening to Sarah MaLachlan by candelight, and ironing table linens.
I hold a BS in communication from Northwestern University and an MBA from Lake Forest Graduate School of Business. I also spent a few years in the bioethics program at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School before trading in my theology books for guitar lessons at Old Town School of Folk Music.
