I have very much appreciated James’ financial, strategic and legal insights, and often marvelled at his creativity. He has made significant contributions not only to the success of our team but also the broader business with initiatives and operating disciplines he has led and helped shape. James' ability to extract insights from the numbers and package the reporting in such a way to empower and enable our leaders to focus on leading/coaching for performance, and to hold us accountable to our customer, community and business goals has simply been fantastic.
