What do you enjoy most about your role?
I enjoy exploring and developing strategy with our team and then working to realize those strategies.
What has been the biggest challenge you’ve dealt with over the past year?
Hands down the COVID pandemic caused a huge disruption to our business.

Besides the foregoing exceptional performance throughout the pandemic, the Lisk team completed its first acquisition in decades.
