Edward Rafter Senior Associate at George Butler Associates

Data Center veteran, teacher and mentor. Over the course of 30 years it has become apparent to me that one’s personal and professional philosophy often become one and the same in many, if not all aspects of life. Establishing a solid moral compass is the foundation for both. Values of paramount importance include Honor, Integrity, Loyalty and Respect. These values apply to myself and I look for in others; especially those individuals who seek enrichment and growth. It has also become obvious that learning is a lifelong process. Learning both formally and informally holds the key to personal success and to the success of those individuals, groups and organizations we align ourselves with in life.
