I think every industry has one ore more elder leaders in it that set the pace for all the younger professionals. Elliott Boxerbaum was that great mentor in our industry and to me personally. Elliott taught me more than how to be a consultant but how to work with integrity and honor. Elliott and Debbie would grace Jenn and I with their time at every event we were in. It was a couple of years ago when they stopped through California (my home at the time) to let us know of the ALS diagnosis. I will truly miss this great man.
