“I knew he was the right person for the job when I asked him for professional references, and he told me that he could give me a prepared list of his choice, but felt it would be more effective if I just called anyone in the territory that I wanted,” explained Craig. “I did just that, and everyone I spoke to raved about Wayne.”
