What best defines you as a leader?

I am a servant leader who loves to empower and build teams of people who are customer-centric, lifelong learners and have an everything-is-possible attitude.

What concerns you most about the tech space?

In the mad dash for integrating AI and machine learning technologies into our daily lives, I think it’s important to remember the value of the human. A person’s ability to connect, relate to and empathize with another is something that is irreplaceable even by the best algorithms.
