“My primary motivation is the reward of being a Solution Delivery provider.  A full solution within every IT project can be a wide variety of things.  It can be technical, operational, financial, translational or even just emotional.  It amazes me how many issues can be resolved in a 20 minute phone call with the appropriate people.  Issues that can remain unresolved for days or weeks, can be resolved in an hour.  That is what Rhyno brings to the party and one of my most rewarding motivations.  This motivation is not just mine, but one shared by the entire Rhyno team.  Each challenge we face is a stepping stone towards achieving the right solution.
. . . our team is a crucial motivation for me.  Their passion, commitment, and expertise are truly inspiring.  In the face of adversity, we support each other, learn from our experiences, and come out stronger.”
