“I think Charles Aris has a niche in strategy – you have your pulse on what is going on. Very thorough process. If I saw something wonky in someone’s resume, I would ask you all and you would have a good answer. Ashlee was really on top of things. She did a good job of always keeping me informed. There was always work being done.”
