Quote: On leaving his job of 10 years to take his current position: “From the business side, I said to myself why leave a situation where all systems are in place and the financial situation is stable for one where I would be searching for tenants and the financial future is uncertain, but that was the challenge. I have the experience and am willing to give this a try.”
