Q. What is the toughest business decision you have ever made?
Joining Armanino, though this is also the best business decision I ever made. I started my Business Intelligence U.S. business from ground zero in 2008, and the only person I knew in the U.S. was my wife. In less than four years we built the business to $1.25 million in revenue which I am very proud of. I was approached by Matt Armanino and Geoffrey Wayong to join Armanino with the opportunity to expand our capabilities beyond my current structure. By 2016 our Business Intelligence practice will grow tenfold and am very pleased they persuaded me to join.
Q. What is your proudest moment?
My wedding day, although I am also very proud at our kids ongoing achievements.
Beyond the Boardroom
Deserted island wish list:
If I were stranded on a deserted island I would want my family and friends with me, some music, books and a soccer ball to kick around.
What do you do to relax when you’re not working?
I play with my kids – anything like Legos, Skylander or the Wii. I also enjoy activities such as soccer, pool and table tennis. But true relaxing is taking a hot-tub with a beer.
