AN INTERVIEW WITH Patty Dominguez, VP of Architecture & Design Sales at Cosentino North America

How did you adjust and overcome obstacles? How did you reset? I believe at Cosentino our biggest challenge was ensuring that we were able to keep the balance between the safety and health of our employees as the main priority and finding a way to continue to operate the daily business worldwide. Similar to other companies we adapted to the virtual world as a way of living and to continue doing business. Since we are a company where our greatest value is personal relationships virtual meetings and visits were very important. It was difficult to adapt at first but we found ways to make this successful.
