Maxwell makes business and partnerships development look effortless with an uncannily genuine interest to learn about, connect with, and help everyone he meets. Our partners, customers, advisors, and service providers weren’t just doing business with us. More importantly, they believed in us as people and long-term friends and collaborators. Much of this is because of Maxwell. I have never taken for granted how easy it is to work with Max. He makes people feel appreciated and supported. His innate, charismatic leadership abilities will only get better with time and experience.
