What’s been your biggest professional/work accomplishment so far in your career?

My greatest accomplishment is not only growing my company to $10 million dollars, but more importantly growing a team of like-minded individuals who truly enjoy what they do. My very first employee still works at Charles IT 15 years later — a tribute to my dedication to take great care of my team.
