What I do at Virtual:
I am responsible for driving the growth of Virtual as well as its client organizations. For Virtual itself, I lead our company’s business development activities, including the continuous (re)positioning of new services and offerings into the markets we serve. I also collaborate closely with our client teams – and our clients themselves — to help ensure every client we serve meets or exceeds its strategic objectives. My passion is to move ideas from concept to reality, and I am fortunate to be able to do that on a daily basis at Virtual.

Favorite client story:
Every mobile phone on earth contains an implementation of at least one standard that I’ve been involved with at some point in my career. It’s really neat to think of the impact of my work at that scale.
