Read the full interview below:

What do you believe are your core strengths as a leader and what lessons taught you the most about driving success?

I strongly believe that I excel in accomplishing tasks and goals. My approach is rooted in maintaining a positive mindset and believing that anything is possible. While this mindset alone doesn’t solve problems, it empowers me to seek solutions with determination. Whenever a customer presents a problem, I take it upon myself to construct a suitable solution. This ability has proven invaluable in leading vTech Solution through challenging periods, such as the downturns of 2009 and 2020, and enabling us to emerge successfully. Throughout this journey, I’ve realized that every situation presents an opportunity; the key lies in identifying and aligning our strategies. By persistently trying and refusing to give up, I’ve transformed our two-person startup into a multinational enterprise with over 500 employees.

If your career came to an end tomorrow, what would you say have been the most significant accomplishments of your career? Where do you feel you made the most impact?

For me, purpose holds immense importance. I firmly believe in the “why” behind our actions and what we strive to accomplish. Today, I take great pride in empowering over 5,000 individuals during my 17+ years of journey. As a leader, a friend, a well-wisher and a family man, I have been able to guide, mentor, coach and ignite the spark within others, helping them become better individuals. I have instilled courage in them to pursue their dreams and encouraged them to give back to their communities and families.

Giving back is not a separate task on my list but an integral part of my work. Each day, I focus on my family, friends, colleagues, communities, country and the world. I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of their success journeys and contribute to their growth.

With emerging technology influencing the federal government and industry more by the day, what are some of the challenges on the business side of innovation that aren’t always discussed as often as they should be?

I strongly believe that fostering innovation is paramount for companies to maintain relevance in today’s rapidly evolving business landscape. At vTech, our success and expansion across multiple domains can be attributed to our emphasis on people-centric innovation and a company culture that encourages innovation at all levels. A key aspect of this approach is empowering employees to take the lead, experiment with their ideas and build new solutions. However, it is important to acknowledge that emerging technologies not only reshape the technological landscape but also bring about a generational shift in beliefs and priorities within the federal industry.

Amidst these changes, one of the most significant challenges is managing people and working with their acceptance of and resistance to change. This crucial aspect is often overlooked in conversations, even though we are ultimately in the people business. To foster successful innovation, it is vital to consider the input, ideas, beliefs and future outlook of the new generation while also carefully weighing the pros and cons.

Additionally, the pace of technological change poses a significant challenge within both the federal government and industry, where budgets and resources are often constrained. Navigating this rapidly evolving landscape requires proactive adaptation and a thoughtful allocation of limited resources.

How would you describe your management style and core values toward building a winning culture?

I believe fostering a culture of collaboration, transparency and innovation is vital for cultivating a winning culture. I prioritize creating an environment where open communication, idea-sharing and teamwork are encouraged. We can generate fresh ideas and approaches that drive our business toward success by fostering trust in individuals and providing new opportunities. At the heart of our culture is the belief in creating new opportunities for our team members and leaders to thrive. We strive to build an amazing workplace where everyone enjoys their work while achieving exceptional results. We adhere to our 11 standards, which are prominently displayed on our website and on plaques in each office. These standards guide our actions and reflect our commitment to excellence.

I strongly believe in empowering individuals by providing them with a clear vision and the tools they need to be productive. Helping people maximize their productivity creates a positive and fulfilling work environment that fuels our collective success.
