WHAT HAS FUELED YOUR COMPANY’S GROWTH? From the beginning, we have been determined to build a significant company. The people who work here see themselves
as being a part of that mission. Finding people who can identify with our culture is not always easy. However, we have learned that it is the critical prerequisite for any potential employee.
DO YOU PLAN ANY CHANGES IN YOUR COMPANY IN THE UPCOMING MONTHS? Yes. One of the strengths of our organization is the ability to make adjustments. We anticipate the next 12 months being a very significant and strategic time for our company. We have always made adjustments. I anticipate more of that as we continue to scale the business.
WHO ARE THE BUSINESS PEOPLE, LOCALLY OR NATIONALLY, WHOM YOU ADMIRE? AND WHAT TRAITS DO THOSE PEOPLE EXHIBIT THAT MAKE YOU ADMIRE THEM? I respect a number of business people both here in Milwaukee and in other cities. However, I probably learn more from the people I work with day in and day out in my company than any other source. That ranges from a new college graduate with a fresh perspective to the senior business person applying their years of experience. If you listen well to those around, you can learn something new every day.
WHAT IS THE OUTLOOK FOR THE BUSINESS CONDITIONS OF YOUR INDUSTRY OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS? I believe it will be more of what we’ve seen over the last 12 months, which is a cautious expansion of investment in information technology.
Congratulations from these strategic partners:
