Charles Kaliman and Ed Gribbin met at TexProcess last month and after a short talk, Ed suggested that Charles attend our Regional Event in New York City.
Charles attended the NYC Event and stayed until the bitter end! We saw him again the following day at Alvanon’s Trailblazers event and yesterday he joined our Network. I can’t wait for you to meet him!
