He has an inspiring personal story that guides his work as a leader and businessman. There was no hesitation when he asked me to join the S3 board. It has been a pleasure to serve on the S3 board of advisors in support of Rod, the management team and other advisors. Rod has built a highly successful company with incredible potential.
