Hi, I'm Ward Carter, and I'm the President of Corum Group, working from our headquarters office here in Bellevue WA.  I've been with Corum since 1997, and have been involved in some way in many of the deals we've done since 1997.  We work as a team, with the dealmakers actively assisting their colleagues in each deal, as well as drawing on the support of staff members who provide skills in financial analysis, valuations, writing, research and administration.  I am actively involved in managing client engagements, and draw upon my love of technology and knowledge of software as well as background from years in software and in financial services.  I look forward to interacting with our blog visitors, and making this a rewarding interchange for us all.
