Getting to know David outside of work

“Being in the service industry has its challenges, as we need to adapt to many different types of sponsors, with a wide range of program parameters, expectations, and backgrounds. The culture we’ve developed over the years, which factors close attention to clients’ needs and values internal collaboration and teamwork to meet those needs, is on that I am very proud to be part of.” – David Grégoire
