The multiple experiences you encounter as a business grows make the next enterprise a little easier to figure out what to do next. When I come into the office any given day of the week, you will see phone calls and emails about issues that, if you're with a multinational that's been around for 30 or 50 years, it's same old, same old. The routine is in place. With a startup such as an emerging-growth firm like Fluid Imaging, everything's new, so you need to make a quick assessment of the options and opportunities, and then implement or execute the decision or the process.
Q: What are your interests outside of work?
A: I golf and bike and ski and work out. I do a lot of reading. I like histories and biographies. When I travel -- and I do a lot of travel -- I try to make traveling as enjoyable an experience as possible these days. I'll find an interesting museum in some capital around the world to visit, or some famous site or historical monument. I'll get one thing out of it that's personal, that makes it enjoyable, rather than just 100 percent business.
