What has been your greatest business challenge?
The biggest challenge is really how do you continue the top-line growth.
What has been the greatest business lesson you’ve learned?
The most important, what people forget, is the culture of the company, and how do you maintain the culture. We’re a very open culture, we allow employees to participate, we are a very employee-focused company.
Whom do you admire most in business and why?
I admire what Cisco has done. I think Chambers (John T. Chambers, president and CEO, Cisco Systems Inc.) has done a great job. I think maintaining the culture and continuing the growth is what he has done. We’ve modeled many times what Cisco does.
