Sometimes the best deal is the one you don't do. What's the best thing to happen to your company since last year? Our business brings a lot of good moments we share with clients, as we work side by side to help them succeed in their goals. Of course, we also won this award for the seventh year running, which is pretty amazing. Tell us a company secret.

If you could invite anyone, from modern times or history, to coach your staff, who would it be and why? That would have to be none other than the Papa Bear, George Halas. Not only is he among the winningest coaches in NFL history, but he was an innovator, motivator, tactician, player-coach, teacher and champion who led by example. If your company had a mascot, what would it be and why? It would be a honey bee. They work their butts off flying around pollinating everything but are instrumental in helping everything around them grow and blossom.
