Pete loves the challenge and excitement yielded by solving difficult problems and collaborating with his peers. In fact he enjoys it so much, he told the team (and his family) that even with $100MM in the bank, he would still be part of a unique and awesome practice of technologists who provide first-class consultative services to their customers. That’s why he’s thrilled to be a part of the Oteemo team, working closely with customers to ensure their success and continuing his journey as a leader and technologist.
