And, Just Like That, We Are 30 Years Old
I am fortunate. I do remember 30 years ago when I signed my name on an agreement where I would pay my former employer more money than I ever thought I would have. It has been an unbelievable journey to where we are now.
I would have never believed I would have a GREAT staff of more than 40 people working in Akron, Ohio and Washington, DC. I would have never believed we would expand outside of the 50 states and the federal government to include cities, counties, and International countries. I would have never believed our fabulous clients would include top Fortune 500 companies along with the biggest and the brightest trade associations.
We have survived so much including a recession and the pandemic and with my senior team managed to get through them without ever laying off any staff member.
So, what is next? Our HUGE plan is to move our Akron office to larger quarters where we will all be on the same floor. Plans are in action, paint colors chosen, and carpets picked out and we will be there in mid-October. The photos include me signing the lease with Nola Werren, Esq. as our notary public along with my fabulous broker and realtor Patrick and Stephen Powers who were very patient with me. The other photo is in our new lobby with Summit County Executive Ilene Shapiro and my new property owner George Sarkis from R&A Properties, LLC. It is definitely one of the nicest buildings in downtown Akron. Stay tuned…You will see our renovation photos during the summer.
More important, I thank our clients and colleagues for always counting on the staff for compliance services and the thousands of folks who subscribe to our website. It would not be the same without you.
Thank you. Here is to the future.
