Balancing vision and force of will with the ability to partner is what separates the good from the great. The most successful teams that I have been part of were made up of collaborative and passionate individuals that were able to pull together, drive past adversity and make success happen.

I am the child of immigrants. My mom and dad both escaped adversity in communist Romania in the 60’s, with nothing more than the clothes in their suitcases. They met and made a home in New York City where my dad, with little English, slowly made the American dream a reality. He got his start as a taxi driver and shoemaker and slowly progressed to business owner. Both my dad and mom’s entrepreneurial spirit, grit and dedication to the success of their family are what guide me to this day. While my career looks like classic large company progression, it’s far from that. I have always played the role of entrepreneur inside the enterprise, and approach challenges in the same way.
