My account manager is extremely efficient and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble, he always answers my questions, gives excellent advice, and if on the rare occasion he does not know something, or is unsure, is not afraid to say so and will always find out the answer. This, in my view, makes him extremely trustworthy and reliable.
