Silvershift® offers the services of Joe Bogdan.  A creative, problem-solving “doer” with a long history of both rolling up sleeves on substantive work and building and leading teams to strategize, then execute, Joe is comfortable in high-profile and frenetic environments, as well as in times of both prosperity and crisis.  Those who know Joe best describe him as driven, energetic, self-motivated, meticulous, hard-working, and unencumbered by conventional thinking.
