Who’d rather have a conversation than let an issue sit unresolved. The ones who aspire to greatness, but don’t pack it in when they hit a snag. They smile broadly, and often. They say hello, and offer their help. They’re talented, and ready to work.

These are our people. And we’re always looking for more to join us.
