Living our values

“I grew up in the Midwest and my international experience consisted of a day trip across the border into Canada. Today, my team of nine colleagues hails from six different countries. I’ve had the opportunity to work with people from our offices around the world and partner with management teams leading global businesses. The world feels increasingly interconnected and, in that context, it is a privilege to work at an organization that succeeds as one global team.”
