Fine speaks: “I’ve segregated a small component of the organization and told them, ‘Your job is to think about the future. I don’t want you thinking about the pandemic at all. We have other people to deal with the issues of PPE and intensive care beds and ventilators.’ I want them thinking about how we can take advantage of what’s going on and be opportunistic and reposition ourselves for growth coming out of the pandemic.”
