A super-awesome, passionate team with high levels of integrity, alignment to CMRU’s vision, top-notch dedication and a robust intent to bring the CCC to life! This transformative journey is also testimony to the fact that teamwork (always) works, and that talent no longer resides in an individual but in the team!
