How has your career grown since starting at the company?

When I was selected to do the open bell ceremony in New York during the merger. It lit another fire under me and let me know that there’s a different kind of energy here. I really wanted something bigger here with the company. They believed in me, and they gave me a prestigious honor. To know that the company believed in me, made me give 150%.
