“As a huge hockey fan, I often consider the advice hall-of-famer Wayne Gretzky received from his father: ‘Go to where the puck is going, not where it has been.’ In our business, it’s a reminder to not only deliver on our clients’ immediate needs, but to also help them identify opportunities that lie ahead.”
