We are tireless in our pursuit of the best talent across industries and unrelenting in our commitment to supporting our client partners achieve their full potential. Not only are we excited to capitalize on his extensive relationships and new business development prowess, but also Stephen’s expansive leadership capabilities will greatly benefit our growing team overall.”
