He adds that Integra Optics’ continuous growth and financial success were also big factors in his decision to join the company. As far as the people who are part of the Integra team, Wolbert describes them as “friendly, hardworking, and lighthearted.” He says, “I’ve never been around a group of people who work this hard and make it seem so effortless.”
