He has a long history of applying innovative thinking to deal processes and has been recognized for his work on collaborative negotiations and relationship-based contracting, focusing on deal factors such as organizational change management, relationship issues, innovation drivers, value creation, and other items that are important to get right, and provide strong indicia of deal success.
