What has been the secret to your success? 

With the changes in our industry and constant volatility in the capital markets, I try to encourage our company leaders to always reflect on what we are doing as a company and to understand its impact, while not forgetting to celebrate our victories along the way. Our industry is constantly evolving, and we must be doing the same.
