Words From The Path
We are our brother’s keepers.
My drive and commitment is founded on the belief that it is important to the health and well being of our community to have balance and collaboration between the business, civic, economic and social elements of the city of Chicago.
Dr. Leon Finney
I’ve mastered the ability to elevate small talk into medium talk. Try me! My biggest pet peeve is negative people. Why? Ain’t nobody got time for that.
I believe inherently that it’s a blessing to be able to look back at where you came from, but that it’s more important to reach back. It’s remarkable to me that some 230 years after DuSable settled in Chicago, it is- although a city of world renown- still the best kept secret in the universe; A collection of neighborhoods and languages and people. I feel completely committed and responsible to always making sure that she can be the best city possible.
To whom much is given, much is expected.
My personal path to success is exemplified by the following poem that I live by: I’m tired of sailing my little boat, far inside the harbor bar. I want to go out where the big ships float, out on the deep where the great ones are. And should my frail craft prove too slight for waves that sweep those billows o’er, I’d rather go down in the stirring fight than drowse to death at the sheltered shore.
Among the hallmarks of our operations is an abiding commitment to provide strong customer relations and customer service, and to apply best industry practices and the latest technological solutions available around the world.
Thomas McElroy, II
I love jazz and think there are stories on Black lifestyles that have been mistold, untold and need to be retold. Chicago is the greatest city and is where the world lives. Nothing like a bike ride on the lakefront in the summer time. Tennis anyone?
You have to be careful who you share your dreams with because people will tend to share their fears. What you are actually hearing is what they can’t do.
Dee Robinson Reid
Leadership to me means having passion about what you do and perseverance to achieve your goals. I believe that leaders are ordinary people who accept or are placed under extraordinary circumstances that bring forth their untapped potential, producing a character that inspires the confidence and trust of others.
