Working Style

Jody Sterba, Former VP Marketing

Josh was great to work for. He is the exact opposite of a micro-manager and allowed me the freedom to make decisions for company operations while standing by with support and coaching. I learned a tremendous amount from Josh and would recommend him highly. He is super creative, remarkably intelligent, and manages to keep the "big picture" in mind with every decision he makes.
