Living in Toronto with his family, Hans quips about his role at P&C Global saying, “Managing technology in a company filled with tech experts feels like being a referee at a hockey game where everyone thinks they know the rules better than you. But, hey, that’s half the fun!” This humorous and self-aware approach to his challenging role encapsulates Hans’s philosophy of leadership – taking work seriously, but never forgetting to embrace the journey with a touch of humor.
