Over the past few weeks, I have been incredibly privileged to speak with many of you. Thank you for sharing your perspectives with me. I’m truly in awe of your calmness and positivity in the face of the fear that so many of us feel. Furthermore, I greatly admire your ability to shine with compassion, especially upon those that need it most.
This is what leaders do. They remain calm when others are fearful.
As we prepare to celebrate our 32nd birthday tomorrow, I am incredibly grateful for you and all that you are doing for this company. As a company, we have been through many economic ups and downs. Thanks to you, we are built to last and will get through this current environment stronger than ever.
The men and women in the management and construction companies are our very own front line of compassion and concern for others. The main office is an extraordinary support team—they have your back and watch your flank. You all are an army of goodness that rushes in when others rush out.
We are a family taking care of family and this includes taking care of one another.
We’ve recently been told by our government that our work is essential—but we already knew that. Providing shelter, service and sanctuary is as important as providing food and water. We wouldn’t want it any other way because this is what we do, and this is who we are. This is what The Bozzuto Group is built for and we are more than ready for this.
As the economic reality of this pandemic sets in, we must continue to do our best to prepare our business for long-term success in the face of uncertainty. We must continually take proactive precautions along the way in order to build our corporate immunity against things we can’t control, while excelling at what we can.
And while we can’t control the externalities of the world, we can control ourselves. We can show up to work every day and do beyond what is expected. We will drive forward with concern, creativity, passion and perfection. We will be a company that makes a difference. It is candidly a privilege to be in a position to serve. This service towards others will be our legacy.
Thank you again for your extraordinary efforts during this difficult time.
