COO Security Solutions



I’m fascinated about potential of human being and find growth and learning key things in business and in my own life. Technical problems can be always solved, but human related issues are challenging ones. Change is interesting and continuous challenge. I think typically lack of process is not reason for failure but rather lack of buy-in from people. Leadership, in addition to vision and goal setting, is a lot about leading feelings and attitudes.
