I am excited about leading Deloitte Growth Enterprise Services. Deloitte Growth Enterprise Services is focused on serving companies ranging from start-ups all the way to those companies with the billion dollars of revenue. If you really think about it, companies in that size frame are really the backbone of the American economy and represent a really significant portion of our Deloitte practice today. Our people oriented culture, our collaborative nature, the resources and experiences we have as the global leader positions us to deliver with a personal touch of a trusted professional advisor.
One of the incredible experiences I have had working at Deloitte was the opportunity to just see the world. When I graduated from college I had really never been outside the country. Since that point in time I have traveled to probably 40 different countries. And just to experience all those different cultures, to meet all those different people has been an unbelievable developmental experience for me.
This is the picture of my family on a vacation we took to Brussels. It just reminds me of first of all what’s important in life, which is my family. I love the smiles on each of my kids faces and the big smile on my wife’s face; it puts a big smile on my face.
I have been blessed to have a number of partners and managers that I have worked with through all my career that I look up to. Still today, when I am faced with some difficult choices and some difficult decisions I never hesitate to call some of those folks and say, well, what do you think, you know. I love being in an environment where everyone I am surrounded by is bright intelligent, energetic, but most importantly they care about each other. What keeps me here is the people.
