Leadership Team

 

One of the strategies that have contributed to our success as a company is to build a team made up of diverse and passionate individuals who share similar values when it comes to learning and development. Each member of the team believes in what they do and are very good at it. At MJI our consultants are not generalists but rather specialists in their various competencies. Our clients have benefited not just from the knowledge garnered and shared by the team but more importantly the wealth of experience and passion that each of them brings.
