Sure...real-market experience comes with some time. But it’s a mistake to equate quality experience simply in terms of time-put-in. A better gauge for depth and breadth may be in the feedback of stakeholders, collaborators and peers. Each of us owes a debt to those that have offered opportunities along the way. We’ve worked with professionals of the highest order. And we express appreciation to those willing to share their endorsement in this venue.
