The first thing I am thankful for this year? Finally being able to wear a sweater and enjoy a glass of wine by the fire. It has been a long, hot summer in San Diego and it feels great to finally have some cool weather.
On a more serious note, I am thankful for so many things this year—it’s difficult to wrap them all up in one single blog post. That said, here are a few things at the top of my gratitude list:
- I am thankful to have the opportunity to work with so many wonderful people. As a company, we are truly blessed to have such a talented group of committed associates who believe in our mission of serving our clients, colleagues and communities. I look forward to coming to work each and every day. What I enjoy most is simply the opportunity to interact with our amazing colleagues and see their passion for what they do here at MMA West.
- I am thankful that we share a common interest in being good corporate citizens and giving back to our communities. The creation of the Barney & Barney Foundation six years ago was the start of something truly unique and special. With the very generous support of our shareholders, our associates and many key business partners, the Barney & Barney Foundation gives us the chance to ensure that we will leave behind something meaningful and lasting in the communities we serve.
