“You’re just so data-driven. That is clear every single day, because you prefer to be transparent. You provide us with dashboards and monthly reports that give us a very thorough understanding of how we're doing. And it doesn't just make it easy for us to help make decisions on our end, but also in terms of articulating the value of what we do internally. It's very easy for us to go to leadership and say, "We need X, Y, and Z, and here's the reason why," because you provide us with all the data.”
