  • An obsession with prospect happiness - set the stage for effective sales follow-up.
  • The courage to challenge the status quo when logic and reason require it. See something broken? Fix it.
  • Flexibility - things change around here. FAST.
  • The intellectual horsepower to become an expert on international trade in a matter of weeks, and the curiosity to keep learning about all its intricacies for years to come.
  • A mastery of email communication. You keep the inbox at zero.
