Us before me – We put ideas before ego and leverage the expertise of others.
Winning is fun – We seek to be number one in the hearts and minds of our people, customers and shareholders. We have limitless ambition and the drive to win.
Think big, act quick – We think long-term in our decisions, but we make them quickly and have a bias towards action.
True to ourselves always – We are honest with one another, even at the risk of temporary disharmony. It is never personal.
Keep it simple – We strive to make everything we do as simple as possible. We set our people up for success and then get out of their way. We only need to be asked once. We own it.
