He has a unique ability to make some of the most complex ideas seem rather simple. If you’ve worked with him, you’ve seen Tony’s ability to bring teams together, make others feel heard, and most importantly, you’ve seen he knows how to get things done. He turns ideas into policy, strategy, and action. And he does it all with a very inspiring optimism.
