    Personal Philosophy

    Know what you love, know yourself and your competition; be "World Class"

    What do you enjoy most about your role? 

    Collaborating with clients to implement their vision, seeing them meet and exceed their business objectives, and having them be "Raving Fans" 

    How does Microsoft Dynamics CRM improve your own performance?

    Microsoft Dynamics CRM's 360-degree view of the client and tightly integrated Microsoft business applications greatly improve my ability to develop and to enrich the customer experience.

    What is it about Hitachi Solutions that makes it a great place to work?

    Many consultants only imagine being part of a high-performance team focused on delivering "World Class" solutions, and having their clients be "Raving Fans."  Luckily for me, I do not have to imagine:  I work at Hitachi Solutions (Customer Effective).
