 What are the top qualities you look for in a new hire?

 When we hire new talent, we look for people who care about customer success, have a desire to grow and can embrace change. The ideal candidate has a strong desire to learn new skills and improve their existing abilities.

Whether major growth or potential downturns, how do you prepare your company for the extreme?

 I enjoy the challenge of figuring out how to fix tricky problems. Moreover, one of my personal goals in life is to equip our employees and customers with the resources they need to succeed. So much of what we do is help other businesses and organizations achieve success by addressing the problems they face and challenging the antiquated technologies and strategies they have grown too comfortable with. While there’s always the potential for a downturn to rear its ugly head, fleet and field services are not rewinding the tape.

Which is your favorite ice cream flavor? Any toppings with that?

Most any flavor of Ben & Jerry’s; and, yes, with lots of toppings (anything salted is a plus)!

DC or Marvel?

I’m more of a Marvel guy myself, and Captain America is probably my favorite. But if Batman is ever interested in a Driveri smart dashcam for the Batmobile, he should give me a call.

What hobby were you really involved in as a kid?

I grew up wanting to play first base for the New York Mets but couldn’t hit a curve ball. I was also an Eagle Scout.

If you won a winning lottery ticket, what would you do with it?

 With the MegaMillions jackpot reaching over $1 billion recently, I’ll admit I’ve given this some thought in the last few weeks. I’d, of course, treat my friends, family and employees to a vacation. I’d donate a sizable portion to the Special Olympics. And maybe splurge on a ’63 Vette.
