VP, Civilian Sales

I develop and execute strategies that align TVAR value-added solutions to address the needs and requirements of the federal civilian agency market space. I lead a team of three federal civilian account executives with an emphasis on creating value for every one of our customers.

The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new. -Socrates
