"Kim and I haven't work together on many projects. The interesting thing is that it does not take that much to see his excel characteristics. He is a person with strong ownership and driving for results all the time. His sense of responsibility, his leadership, and his enthusiasm toward work impressed me a lot. I wish Kim all the best and a even more successful career in the future."
