Office Happenings

As promised, here are a few pictures from our holiday party in December. Great times, great food and great colleagues!

Lisa and Nicole, our recent new hires, had the opportunity to spend the better part of January learning from their peers through our firm wide training initiatives. This included an opportunity for both of them to spend an afternoon shadowing Jay Lohman, our firm's President. We know they gained a wealth of valuable information and appreciate the time and effort put in by all!

All it takes is a mention of “SuperBowl” to bring out the competitiveness around here! A little friendly competition was a highlight of the event and we congratulate those that prevailed! Always a fun time, we're already looking forward to next year's match-up!
