My first initial priority was to grow that office and champion the Guidepoint brand to a market that was not super familiar with Expert Networks. Taking on this challenge took a lot of intentional strategy, resiliency, and creativity- it really pushed me to grow personally and professionally. While we are still growing the Phoenix office, I feel proud to have contributed to the growth we have seen thus far, and the relationships established.
