Can you tell us a little bit about your role?
My role focuses on developing new business, fostering client relationships, putting together Custom Resource Solutions (CRS) programs to accomplish the goals of the client, ensuring delivery, and training our new hires.
Where did you go to school?
I attended Carthage College for two years where I played soccer, and then I transferred my junior year to University of Iowa where I graduated with my Bachelor’s in Marketing.
What drew you to York Solutions?
The leadership and values the company believes in – the services we’re providing, it’s a true market disruptor as our competitors aren’t providing the same value.
Why do you like coming to work every day?
I enjoy the people I work with and what we are trying to accomplish. As I mentioned, I truly feel we are a market disrupter and are doing something different than everyone else.
Who has influenced you the most, either professionally or personally?
My father has had a great influence on me. He came to America without knowing the language or understanding the culture, but he was able to build his life from the ground-up.
How do you spend your time outside of the office?
I enjoy golfing, playing recreational soccer, and reading.
Do you have a hidden talent or something interesting that most people do not know about you?
During my time at Carthage College, my soccer team won the conference soccer championship.
What is your favorite quote or what motivates you?
I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty six times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life, and that’s why I succeed. - Michael Jordan
A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer. - Bruce Lee
If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses. - Henry Ford
