“Francois, was a strong team member, a quick-study with an innovative approach to generating sales opportunities, the know-how to foster and maintain customer relationships and an unrelenting zeal to drive large deals to closure. This is coupled with his innate capacity to build consensus across internal and external organizations and a delightful sense of humor which enables everyone to keep perspective even under the most challenging of circumstances.
