Managing Director

As Managing Director, I operate as a strategist and a leader steering the company to the most profitable direction while also implementing its vision, mission and long term goals. I'm very strong in crisis management and "real time" decision making. Currently, I ensure the company is constantly moving towards fulfilling its short-term and long-term objectives and I do not diverge from its strategic guidelines.

My ambitions are to help people choose career paths or switch career fields. I am also referred to as a career counselor and I give assessment tests to clients as a way to determine several factors, such as personality types, skills, and work ethic. Information gathered from these tests allow specialists to figure out which career paths are best-suited for clients.
