What has been the secret to your success?
Success cannot be achieved without an incredible team — and I’ve been lucky to work with extraordinary people over the years. Because of this, I’m constantly looking for ways to appreciate and inspire my team. We should never take for granted the way things have always been or we miss the opportunity to innovate and truly make a difference. I remind myself every day to stay curious, push the boundaries and challenge the status quo.
