    I guess there's a mistake here

    Hello, everyone

    In this message below:

    Thomas is a high performer manager, focused on results and always keep an eye in the market trends.'

    Isn't 'high performer' badly used here? Shouldn't 'high performing' be used instead?

    Thank you in advance
