A dynamic and forward-thinking individual, this executive thinks on their feet and regularly juggles numerous commitments with important stakeholders across their diverse array of professional commitments. Honest, warm, hardworking and transparent, this executive believes that a strong EA/executive relationship must be built on trust, so is looking for that trustworthy right-hand support person.  Highly intelligent, analytical and questioning in nature, this executive values challenging the status quo and relishes in finding new ways of efficiency, productivity and goal achievement.
