IN HIS WORDS
Best superpower? “Flight. I like the idea of being able to be home in time for dinner with my kids regardless of where my day has taken me.”
Proud career moment? “I closed a multi-million dollar software deal at Best Buy, a then emerging retailer. At the time, the deal was the single largest CRM implementation in company history.”
Favorite airport? “Whichever one will put me closest to Cabo San Lucas. Did I mention I live in Michigan?”
Who do you wish lived next door? “Tim Allen. He’s funny, a fellow Michigan native, and I’d always know where to find an extra circular saw.”
