I’ve worked with Joe one-on-one, as part of team, and at the BOD level and consider him to be a wise and effective executive and leader of ... people. He’s blessed with an incisive mind, deep listening skills, an abundance of curiosity about the world around him, calming equanimity and bias for action. He quickly cuts through complicated business, people, technology strategy and resource issues and gets things done with whatever is, or is not yet, available. He’s also witty and fun to work with.

Joe is always approachable and lays out a path that shows you what to do – today, not just some distant target to shoot for. Fiercely dedicated to the people around him, Joe is not afraid to roll up his sleeves and dig into work. He’s not above making a few phone calls or putting in late nights to help friends bring an idea to life.
