Investing in that culture has enabled us to serve customers in ways I wouldn’t be able to dream up on my own. That service enables us to support our industry, and it’s from that industry that we derive our very existence. Nearly every opportunity we have today, or will ever have, is related to our ability to create and ensure that kind of customer satisfaction.”
