In addition to learning the ropes from the team elders, they are focused on developing our technology infrastructure and service capability, as well as researching the market for new opportunities.

They are both intent on paying homage to the legacy created by Alex and Nikos, upholding the reputation they have earned, and living up to the expectations that the market has of the Resolute name.
