I started working with Louis in early 2013 and he has been a trusted colleague and mentor ever since. Over the years working with Louis, I have learned how to problem-solve, negotiate and listen to clients with empathy. Louis is extremely dedicated to his clients and has a passion for helping businesses, ranging from startups to global conglomerates, I have not seen in other partners. His 24/7 availability and natural ability to immediately drill down and execute on goals makes him the go-to advisor to many companies, investors, and colleagues.
