“I encourage all our employees to get involved and give back to the community. I can say that my experiences have been incredibly rewarding and interesting. You learn so much as you extend outside the immediate scope of your professional interests. You meet new people and learn about things that you never would in your normal business day. I like the idea of getting outside your comfort zone and helping improve the community in which we live,” explained John.
