Rita M. Wall
Director of Research
"A noted author once said 'Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose.' After years in this industry, I find myself aligned with this statement more and more as I work toward finding the very best prospects possible for the search we are conducting. And the best part about it? It’s fun."
