Leadership

Our leadership team makes decisions in our clients’ best interests and no one else’s — we are 100% privately owned and operated and not beholden to an outside board or investors. Wrap this with our family ownership since 1929 and a focus on our customers rather than a sale or IPO, and you start to see what makes working with us a different kind of experience.
