‘Our work involves equal parts psychology and evidence. I look at the chemistry of the teams we’d like to collaborate with as well as their drive and authenticity, as much as I factor in their past performance. Fairview took a chance on me 15 years ago and I’m proud to exercise my own willingness to take calculated risks. If a good idea is brought to me by people that display commitment, persistence, and humility, I believe it’s a bigger risk to not explore that opportunity. I champion deals with conviction because my faith in relationships are always reciprocated.'
