In it, the CEO – who recently spoke in depth to GGRAsia – offered a perspective on the value of a return during 2022 to in-person business – and of industry trade shows – after the Covid-19 pandemic.
“I think business gets done better in person. In fact, I think real-time, face-to-face interactions are essential to the ongoing success of our clients as well as our company,” wrote Mr Maida.

He also talked in the open letter about the business outlook for 2023. “In the last few months, we have hired an additional 241 new personnel, including 25 new mathematicians, increasing the capability in that department alone by over 33 percent,” he stated.
