Together, we lead a team of approximately 50 people. We have transitioned our team from being a paper-based group of individual contributors to a cohesive, high-performing team. Our management team approaches issues in very different ways and we all have different leadership styles, but in the end, we all support each other and we inspire our team to do great things!"
