I have known Brian now for close to decade.  He is not only a brilliant IT professional and CEO but he is a very caring person as well.  Brian has grown Blue Stingray exponentially since he started the company while doing great things for our community along the way.  He has always been a great encourager to me as a fellow CEO and I am certain that his caring, encouraging nature is one of the secrets to building a strong team and client base for Blue Stingray.
