I vividly remember the day in 2005 that Ben Schorr and I sat around the table in our downtown Honolulu office and made the decision to start Roland Schorr & Tower.  It was exciting, new, challenging and a little scary.  Now, 16 years later, it is still all those things and more.  Technology is always changing, keeping things new.  Getting to work in an industry that you love is always exciting, and as anyone who looks back on the last few years, you can take your pick of things that are challenging and a little scary.

We have grown from our start in Hawaii, with a hand full of clients and a couple of techs to now having offices in four states and serving clients nationwide.  There has been one main reason behind this.  One thing that I can point to and say, “This is what made it possible!”  And that is the amazing people who have joined us along the way.  Both Employees and Clients.  So as that time of year approaches where you begin to reflect on what you are grateful for, I want to say how thankful I am to the wonderful people who have joined us on this journey.  The old saying, “Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life.” may not be 100% accurate.  There have been days when it is a lot of work, but I am so happy to get to face those challenges with the team we have here at Roland Schorr & Tower.

Not only is this crew the best, but so are our Clients.  Some of them have been with us from day one, when we depended on each one to keep our doors open every day.  It has been one of the most rewarding things to watch them grow and prosper along with us.  I am happy that 16 years ago, we decided on the company motto, “We succeed when you do!” because it has held true for all these years and helps to guide us in the directions we take each and every year.

So happy birthday RST, and to each and every client, employee, and partner we have met along the way, I want to say, “Thank you!”  We could not have made it here without you, and I look forward many more years growing together.
