What has shaped me as a leader

Commitment to coaching  and development.

I create supportive environments for learning and for one to be surprised by their own capabilities.

Fotine reported to me during this period, and I could not recommend her highly enough for an array of reasons that make her an incredible asset to any prospective employer. Words that come to mind describing Fotine - fierce, energetic, dedicated, and authentic. Fotine demonstrated the ability to quickly grasp new markets, concepts, and technology that she had not been exposed to before. She has an unparalleled focus on developing her team and excelling her understanding of the markets she serves to drive rapid growth with an innovation focus. Fotine is a consistent high performer and keeps the customer squarely at the center of everything she does.
