I have known Bard for more than 10 years now when we first met through contact center networking groups ( ATA,SOCAP). On first calls, he always blew me away with his talent to break the ice and quickly create a connection from his experience in the industry. It was like he could turn anyone into an “old college buddy”.
Bard is an extremely knowledgeable, engaging, professional and assertive Senior VP. As a leader, he is always motivating, upbeat and demonstrates high integrity.
