President & CEO, Chris Dimou, said during his key note speech, “Endurance isn’t easy and meaningful endurance is even harder. For an organization to endure for 40 years, and to be as relevant today as it was at the founding, is quite an accomplishment. But what matters most now is what we do next. We have to, and will continue to, relentlessly pursue what has made us successful in the first place: To create superior customer value.”
