Technology and innovation are vital enablers for this journey, and as we are a software company, Carl is the perfect candidate to further strengthen our leadership team and lead the change across these functional areas. With his impressive resume and his personality, we are certain he will contribute strategic acumen, relevant and unique experience, and a proven ability to execute in an agile and lean manner. Everyone at FLYdocs is excited and eager to work alongside him as we propel the company forward.”
