Penrod asks “What are you thankful for this holiday season?”


Thanksgiving is an opportune time to reflect on all we are thankful for and this year our list is getting higher and higher! 2016 has been epic and we have our entire team to thank for their dedication and loyalty. Without them we would not have become one of Milwaukee’s Best Workplaces for Young Professionals or been listed as an INC 5000, fastest-growing privately held company. We could not have done it without them and we believe gratitude is meant to be shared. With that in mind we asked our team:


“What are you thankful for this holiday season.”

“I’m thankful that I work with such awesome people!”
