Leadership is challenging for some. For Fil it comes naturally. From when he called in for the intern position, he was very personable and professional on the phone. Leaders are self motivated and want to improve in all aspects of their life. When you think of a leader, Fil comes to mind. He is consistent and hit his goals hard his first week in the business! Rather than having a kick back summer, his goal is to improve his communication skills and gain overall business experience. He is always helping people in the office, having a strong student mentality by asking lots of questions. He has built a close relationship with each team member by attending every social & team event. As a leader, he understands that if he is approachable to others, leads by example, and keeps a positive attitude, that others will be motivated to learn from him and vice versa. He is a joy to work with and we are proud of his quick leadership mentality. Keep it up Fil!
