Video Transcript: CEO Matt Snow’s Town Hall Message
As a way to celebrate achievements on a firm-wide and market-level, provide strategic updates and continue our conversation around DHG’s mission, strategy and values, Town Hall meetings take place twice a year in each of our DHG market locations. The recent January Town Hall meetings featured a video address from CEO Matt Snow. A transcript of the video is included below.
Matt Snow’s Town Hall Message:
It is the start of a new year, and with that comes new opportunities, new goals and new plans – for both you and DHG.
We achieved many accomplishments together in 2016 and I could not be more proud. We have great things planned for the coming year and I want to use this time together in our Town Hall meeting to share these plans with you.
DHG is a great firm with a bright future and I am thankful to work alongside each of you. For those of you in assurance and tax, the next few months will involve an increase in your time during our traditional busy season, as we work with our clients to serve their reporting and tax needs; for those of you in advisory practices, you will continue to work at a challenging pace as you manage these client needs year round. These are critical months for all of us in building our careers, and we will not only get the work done, but we will gain new experiences along the way.
As I look back on my career, I realize that I grew the most when I was the busiest – the times when I was pushed to work hard and was challenged to rise to the occasion. It was stressful at times, and I learned that nothing great comes easily; but I always found that serving my clients well and celebrating successes with my teams during these times truly made the hard work worthwhile.
I want you to know – when it comes to growing as a professional, you cannot trade those experiences. They accumulate and build on one another. In a relatively short time, you’ll find yourself elevated to whole different level – becoming a trusted advisor for your clients – and for your team. This is what building a career is all about.
At DHG, we have all of the ingredients we need– a great firm, a people and client-focused mission and strategy, a respectful culture with strong values – And now it is up to each one of us to do our part to continue our forward momentum.
Today, you will hear an update on our DHG strategy. We’ll look back at our major accomplishments and look ahead at what’s to come in 2017. I encourage you to listen and stay engaged. Ask those questions that may be on your mind…even the tough ones!
Again- we have a great team here at DHG and we are in a great place to work. I look forward to seeing all of you in the marketplace very soon. Happy New Year!
