VALUES
  • Pursue Excellence

    We strive for top performance and relentless improvement. We are ALWAYS looking at how we can do better and holding each other accountable for excellence.

  • Think Long-Term

    We take the long-term view of all decisions that we make. Whether an investment or a collaboration, our choices reflect a ten-year horizon toward a sustainable future.

  • Care for Partners

    We chose carefully and developed our people, our teams and our partners. We give feedback, room and tolerance for growth, AND we hold people accountable for their growth commitments.

  • Lead with Integrity

    We do things the right way, not the easy way. We demand openness and intellectual honesty because this enables fast and precise decisions to do the right things for the right reasons.

  • Take Initiative

    We are proactive in taking action and smart risks to win, and we are responsible for our results.

  • Succeed as a Team

    We value collective contribution over individualism. Company achievements come before the team or individual interests.
