"I had the pleasure of working closely with Ms. Thompson for over a decade in her capacity as General Counsel for Pyrotek. The projects we collaborated on are too numerous to mention but one stands out, a global contract with our largest customer. I had attempted literally for years to secure a global contract with our largest customer which would incorporate more equitable terms and conditions than their standard supply agreements offered. The customer (a multi-billion-dollar company) had a small army of attorneys and they were very reluctant to make any changes to their customary T&C’s. What finally moved the discussions forward was getting Emma directly involved in the negotiations with both our primary commercial contact and the customer attorneys. Emma’s knowledge and professionalism gave the customer a comfort level previously missing, opening them to a collaborative negotiation which sought a true win-win outcome. We signed the contract in 2014 and are into our first renewal period with neither side feeling the need to make any substantive changes."
