Alex believes in building trusted relationships. That’s his style, his way of doing business. When he works with someone, whether it’s a colleague, supplier or client, his focus is on trust and a long term relationship.
Truly successful business relationships are never only a company’s achievements, and they do not exist in relationships governed by contracts. They result from tight customer-business partnerships, which require mutual good faith and trust, and which also allow the best ideas to emerge. Breakthrough success requires breakthrough trust.
Alex also kindles tight and trusted partnerships within the Crystal team, which form the same trusted partnerships with our customer students. In maintaining these standards, we ensure that our students get the best of what everyone at Crystal has to offer.
