As we wrap up a year’s worth of celebrating our 25th anniversary in business, I’m uncertain whether I should be tired or energized. On the one hand, that’s one long party! On the other, it’s heart-warming to consider all the wonderful clients and friends we’ve connected with throughout the years. And, it’s energizing to realize we continue to grow and thrive connecting with new friends and clients every day.

For me, it always comes back to my roots. Surround yourself with good people. Stay true to your values. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. It sounds simple and basic… and it is. But, at Krech, O’Brien, Mueller & Associates it has been our formula for success for the past 25 years. We fully expect it to be a similar formula for the next 25.

It is impossible for me to find just the right words of appreciation that embraces 25 years of partnership, collaboration and friendship with each of you. From our clients to our employees to our partners in the industry, we are so grateful to everyone. Since I cannot find the words, let me simply say “thank you.”

I hope you and your loved ones have a safe, healthy and stupendous 2011!
