How long have you worked at Sandel?

I stepped into this role mid­ December  2012. Actually, Gerry Block and I have been partners for many years - I made the first investment in Sandel in 1998. I'm like that guy in the commercial

a few years back who liked the razor so much he bought  the company. At the time,I owned a Baron and had a question about the 3308 I had installed.

I sent an email to the company and received an incredibly detailed answer from Gerry. I was impressed with  how fast he responded. We talked for a while, and I told him that when he needed an investor to let me know. A week later,we were sitting at my dining room table.
