25th Anniversary

25 years of taking the long view.

People, forward.

As we celebrate 25 years, we’ve been reflecting on the path that brought us to this moment. What is our DNA comprised of? Which factors came together to create our success when so many others faltered? Which principles from yesterday will help us create tomorrow?

Of all the wisdom we’ve collectively created, one edict rises again and again, offering something to every moment — People, forward. Those words weren’t at our inception, but the spirit of them was.

Since day one we’ve moved towards our vision of being the Most Loved by being a good place to work, and hiring good people who do good work for our clients and their communities. Along the way our name has reminded us to keep our eyes on the horizon and put our challenges in perspective. When we look to each other, our clients and our communities and we greet them with humanity and a belief that better is possible, not only is failure impossible, but so is regret.

So, let those two simple words guide us as we bid farewell to the quarter century behind us and welcome the decades ahead. If we do, our future will undoubtedly be even more remarkable than our past.

And we couldn’t have done any of it without the people who have supported us along the way — team members, clients, partners – past and present. We’ve made it this far because of you, and when we celebrate 100 years, it will be because of you, too.
