Klingel explains his views on the importance to focus on SHINE’s relationship to its customers and partners:  “I firmly believe that the easiest growth is “organic growth” (growth with existing customer and partners). We want to continue to provide them with the best possible services so that they trust us implicitly – our ultimate goal is to become their trusted advisor.”
