I've been with the company for eight years, and I've been able to establish good relationships across the organization," he said.
Daniel Cari o, who joined the company as a business process associate 10 years ago, is now an assistant channel manager. "ADEC Group provides employees like me with growth opportunities both personally and professionally that helped me improve my leadership skills.
