Super Power: Remaining consistently lively and perfectly focused throughout the numerous meetings of everyday corporate life.

What You Wish You’d Known Earlier: “It was OK more often to admit, ‘I don’t know.’ I now have the maturity to admit that when it is, in fact, the case.”

Most Influential Role Models: “My father, Art Winkler, and his best friend, Richard Chait. My father taught me the value of honesty, modesty and a family-first mentality. Richard has been a model of independent thinking and entrepreneurship.”

People Would Be Surprised to Know: “My goals for many years centered around getting a Ph.D. and teaching the humanities.”
