Seeing persons develop within the company where their talents are used for the success of the team. Personally, I'm passionate about family, hunting, kayaking, hiking, mountains, beaches, lakes, rivers, and the Gulf of Mexico.
I like that everyone is part of the AEU team. Our company structure gives all of us an opportunity to contribute on an account-by-account basis which directly affects the success of the company overall. We feel worthwhile because we are able to use our talents and expertise.
