Sound Familiar

“I have very high regard for Dave – you will get an honest and disciplined approach to capital decision-making. He has good perspective and you can trust that the proper disciplines are being applied. He is always friendly, tactful and insightful, always able to get his point across without creating a ‘we-they’ situation. In baseball terms, he has good clubhouse skills.”
