Michael Jossi
Chief People Officer

I have an entrepreneurial spirit and believe in the power of the team. Personal experience has taught me that a highly functioning team will always deliver more value than a group of highly talented individuals. In the last two decades I have helped recruit, organize and mentor teams that have delivered outstanding strategic, operational, and financial results for their organizations.

Michael J Sullivan
Chief Financial Officer

I love to help build lasting value for companies that are winning in the marketplace and that’s what I’ve done for the last 25-years. The status quo bores me. I thrive on challenging the precedent to drive change. I believe analytical capability and the power of using proprietary analysis can unveil real insight into business performance.
