Our Anchor Tenets

Gritty

Success is not easy, it’s not meant to be. If it were, it would be meaningless. And it’s because it’s not easy that we strive for it. However, the desire for success and the willingness to do what it takes to achieve it are entirely separate. We understand what it means to truly achieve great things. We go the extra mile because it’s in our DNA and it’s the right thing to do. We don’t just talk about what needs to be done, we roll up our sleeves and do it. We look at each challenge presented to us as an opportunity. We embrace the fact that success is hard work.

Authentic

We’re honest, open, and genuine. We know we don’t have all the answers and we’re not embarrassed to lean on each other. We share our successes and failures and learn from our mistakes.

Valuable

We’re here because we’re the best of the best. We have autonomy to contribute, are challenged to learn, and believe in empowering consumers and revitalizing our industry.

Agile

We are driven to succeed with an open-mindedness to get to the right solution. We use the past to inform the future and are fearless in evolving to meet new and changing market needs.

Accountable

We own our role and the contributions we make. We are building something greater than the sum of its parts and we owe it to ourselves, our team and our company to show up and deliver every day.
