I was amazed at his ability to think creatively, to throw out ideas, to be innovative, and that energy that he brought in the room allowed me to begin to dream.

He’s a remarkably good listener and he’s a great caretaker. … He likes to make contacts, he likes to make progress, and he’s determined to move down that route and make everyone proud.
