Chicki will be responsible for managing all projects, establishing and nurturing new customer relationships, and serving existing customers. It’s a big task considering the continued growth of the company, but Chicki is up for the challenge. “This promotion will not only open up new business opportunities for us, but it also gives more opportunity for other people to advance,” he says.
