"Dennis Buchanan has an interesting combination of energy and conservatism. He has the energy level and desire to achieve, tempered with a conservatism that makes him research projects thoroughly before making important decisions. He has learned that sound development requires you to think things through - an approach we at the bank share. Everyone who works for Dennis seems to have that same philosophy."
