Pete, as the IT project manager, adeptly aligned IT rollouts with challenging construction delays. Additionally, Pete is a master communicator. With skilled acumen, Pete worked with demanding personalities to ensure that the desired essentials, as well as the miniscule requests, were delivered promptly and according to specifications.
