I was impressed with James. As an individual that seemed to have genuine concern for a true fit, he probed for areas of overlap, took note of areas I pointed out where there might be synergy, and what really blew me away was when he spoke of a "story to tell". I got the sense that he meant it, that his desire was to paint a picture of how my experience could serve the client.
