    Corey is the guy everyone wants on the team and, based on my experience working alongside him, there are three reasons why: his intellect, work ethic, and interpersonal skills. When it comes to transaction work, Corey quickly identifies and articulates the relevant qualitative and quantitative issues to keep the team focused and working efficiently. Day after day, he completes his own work ahead of schedule and then helps everyone else on the team finish their work before he goes home. It’s no wonder he’s in such high demand to be staffed on engagements.
