Living our values

“I’ve been fortunate to be a part of some great teams over the years – in sports, in combat, and in business. I’ve found that the camaraderie, shared sacrifice, and common purpose involved in being a valued member of a team are some of life’s most rewarding experiences. 'Succeeding as one global team' resonates with me since I highly value the process of teamwork and enjoy learning from a diverse group of colleagues.”
