“One of the best experiences in my career is working with Victor Yakin. I say worked with instead of worked for because Victor was tireless in his efforts to present himself and his team as equals instead of subordinates. His passion was infectious & I enjoyed the manner in which he conducted himself and his strategies. He has natural leadership abilities and his success to date is testament to his development of markets in firms he has worked for.”
