As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~John F. Kennedy
As I begin to prepare for our first company offsite of the year, I find myself grateful. Gratefulness is a personal core value, but it is also a value our team shares. In fact, every Monday, we have a “gratefulness session” and share at least one thing for which we are grateful. Today I am grateful for you and our team.
The year 2022 was a challenging one for Longview and many of our clients. I’m not talking about how the market performed (although, that was a struggle for everyone), but about real life experiences, serious medical concerns, and loss of loved ones. Our team members experienced it as did several of you. Through it all, our team stood by each other, picking up additional job duties and offering support. You also showed support and poured into us as we navigated our way through the difficulties. So, this is a thank you letter.
Thank you for your continued support. You are the reason we exist as a firm. Your trust in us and our process along with your willingness to share our name with others has led to our continued growth. In fact, in 2022, a year that the market was down, we had our largest client growth year in our firm’s history.
Here we are, almost at the end of the first quarter of 2023 already! As we look ahead to the rest of the year, we have some exciting things planned to not only continue to strive for a high standard in our service and technical abilities, but also ways to better connect.
Again, thank you. Thank you for being a part of the Longview family. We appreciate you all more than we could ever put into words.
May we all find much for which to be grateful!
