"When you have a smaller team, it is often easier to influence the culture and live by the company principles,” continued Dailey. “We are thrilled that we’ve been able to grow in size yet continue to stay true to our core values. When every team member makes decisions based on the company’s core values, the result is exceptional. I am extremely proud of our team and all we’ve accomplished over the last 30 years.”
