Blazing through limitations
Samari understands the challenges of growing a business with limited capital and human resources and realizes that a company’s growth depends on working smarter, and faster to survive in today’s competitive market. She earned her reputation as a creative and effective executive able to plan and execute within corporate confines. She developed a sharp eye for tracking how businesses can become bloated with inefficiencies, lack of direction, and miscommunication – and how they can be retooled to a sleeker, smoother, strategically focused organization.
