Our goal is to manage and grow our business around what we call our three Areas of Responsibility. As a progressive company, we feel that it is essential to our success that we balance and nurture these sometimes conflicting areas of concern. They are: Responsibility to Our Clients: Adhere to the fiduciary responsibility and professional service needs of our clients by providing quality and competitively priced services. Responsibility to Our Staff: Provide staff members with a positive work environment through education, training, professional development, utilization of state-of-the-art technology, empowerment, and compensation to respond to our clients’ needs and goals of the firm. Responsibility to Our Bottom Line: Provide a reasonable return on investment for stockholders through stable, consistent earnings while maintaining safety and soundness. We believe that our three areas of responsibility must be kept in balance; one cannot overshadow another. As we grow and become more profitable, our goal is to give each of these areas equal attention.
