As somebody who has been here for over 40 years and has had an opportunity to see the organization change in so many ways – not only from an operational and governance perspective but also a facility perspective – it really is a privilege to be in the building where it all started. In the heat of the moment in any given day it’s easy to forget, but when you have that opportunity to reflect back and realize that it all started here, and to be able to be a part of that by actually having an office in this building, it really is amazing to think about. As people say, the shoulders of the great leaders that we stand upon today, that walked these same halls, that lived in these same spaces. It’s a privilege and humbling.
