Kian’s leadership, while always being genuine and supportive to the entire team, helped drive alignment in our quest to realize the full potential of this business. Not only did they help us expand the depth of our executive team, but they helped create a metric-driven organization that was fundamental to building our platform for growth. Without their guidance, it would have been very difficult to have successfully integrated three acquisitions and to scale so quickly.
