Starting at GPN in 2023 proved to an exciting turning point in my career. I had spent five years in the commercial insurance space and was expectedly nervous about changing industries. Within the first few weeks of starting at GPN, I had the chance to visit with Ed and he could not have been more encouraging as I was neck-deep in learning new industry lingo and business processes altogether. His leadership style in that initial interaction set the tone for what I’ve experienced in my time at GPN so far: approachability and accountability. His encouragement to ask questions and to set high standards for myself have been the difference makers in my brief tenure at GPN. I look forward to learning more from Ed in future and couldn’t be happier for him in his receiving of this award. Congratulations, Ed!
