Tell us about your company’s mission and values
With a foundation of respect and trust, our mission is to build lasting relationships.

Our Core Values are:

When what you think, what you say, and what you do are one.

Radical transparency fosters goodness. Trust is gained by sharing knowledge!

Authenticity requires a certain measure of vulnerability. And vulnerability is our most accurate measure of courage.

Be grateful for pressure, failure, criticism, decisions, respect, struggle, waiting, regret, family, and this moment!

If someone is laughing, laugh with them. If someone is singing, sing with them. If someone is working, let them work…you wouldn’t want to interrupt them.

What makes Columbus such a great place to do business?
Columbus is a young, diverse and forward-thinking city that thrives on innovation making it an exciting base for business. While it has ‘big-city’ opportunities, it hasn’t lost it’s small-town charm. Many of its employees have lived and worked in Columbus for years. They’ve established business relationships that have grown into friendships, and in a community like that, when you do business right, people are happy to refer business to you. We’re proud to call Columbus our home, and are happy to be able to grow with this great city.
