Proudest career moments
The proudest moments of my career have been when we help divestiture clients achieve a flawlessly executed “Day 1.” On Day 1, everything changes: organizations, business processes, IT systems and policies. Thousands of interdependent activities have to go right simultaneously. And when they do, our client wins and we celebrate too.
