Why HillSouth?

“There is nothing in the world I would rather be doing than the incredible challenge that is growing and maintaining a privately-held company. I relish the many opportunities for work that operating a small business presents to me and my career. I am no doubt passionate about technology, and so to be able to meld my passion into a business venture is all the enjoyment I need in my job! It’s a pleasure to be able to go to work on such exciting technology problems every day and I am proud of the work that HillSouth has done and will continue to do under my leadership. More than my work - I am proud to have a team of dedicated and professional people that make up HillSouth. My largest desire is that the team I work with will become many times more successful than I have been. My vision is to build an organization that will long outlive myself or my successor, and to continue to enjoy the journey that is entrepreneurship and public service.”
