What do you believe is a strength of Keystone as an organization?
Keystone gets people. At the heart of any organization is the people affected and employed by the organization and Keystone understands this and incorporates this into their approach.
What’s the best place you’ve traveled to?
Cinque Terre, Italy remains the most beautiful place I’ve ever visited. It consists of 5 villages off the Ligurian Sea. My wife and I hiked between the villages amongst the vineyards and stayed at hostels in each village shortly after the Torino Winter Olympics.
What’s your most used app?
Zoho CRM. It’s what I use to organize my contacts and opportunities. So much opportunity can slip through your fingers so staying organized and having reminders on what’s needed and when it’s needed is critical.
