“It was the bottom of the ninth and we were tied. The opposing team was our arch rival and we had not beaten them in 4 years. This was my last chance to end the drought.
“I studied the pitcher, I looked for any sign that would tell me what to expect. He had already thown 3 fastballs that I managed to foul off. His off speed pitches missed the plate. So here I was, with every eye watching, I couldn't afford to strike out. Everyone was cheering me to win but more importantly, everyone was hoping, even praying that we wouldn't lose.
“Everyday in business someone is facing a situation that feels just like I did 25 years ago. The pressures of getting the job done when it seems helpless or trying to figure something out that just seems to complicated.
“I started Silverlane because sometimes you don't have everyone you need on your team. You really do need the best talent, experiences and solutions that can be found.
“With so much data, with so many technical advances, wouldn't it nice if you could all up someone to step in and bring clarity, new opportunity and vision to a project?
“Oh yeah, the baseball game...
“It ended with the crowd going crazy. Yes, the pitchers threw another fastball and I crushed it!
“And Silverlane exists today to do the same for you. You don't have to go to the plate with a weak hitter. You now how access to the best talent available.”
