“Trying hard is not good enough; I want to make things work out for you.”

I joined Johanson & Yau in 2013 when the firm created its first business development position. In this role, I lead all of our business development endeavors, including initiating contact with potential new clients to introduce our service and industry solutions for individuals and businesses. I appreciate the value in bridging relationships between individuals who might benefit from working with one another. I am also responsible for coaching staff at all levels to develop skills and tools to become the best possible advisers to their clients.

I have many years of experience as a business developer in the professional services industry, including boutique tax firms and a long stint with PwC.

Originally from Montreal, Quebec, I have embarked on the long process of shifting pro hockey loyalties from the Canadiens to the San Jose Sharks. On a typical weekend, I will be found on the links of CordeValle playing golf with – and possibly losing to my wife.
