This year, we are welcoming five new, highly-distinguished members to our advisory board. Coming from names like 3M, AWS, Ernst & Young, Deloitte and RelaDyne, these new board members offer unique expertise in areas such as digital transformation, public sector expansion strategy, and global manufacturing. These timely additions come just after we eclipsed $1 billion in annual revenue for the first time last month.
Our Board of Directors has long been a guiding force behind its success. By lending their skills, guidance, expertise and knowledge, the newly-expanded board offers an outside perspective that aids our executive management team as they make business decisions.
“Over the last 80-plus years, the ingenuity, perseverance and flexibility of our talented community have led to extraordinary growth and success for Stephen Gould. The wealth of knowledge and expertise that will come from our newest advisory board members will help us continue to lead in our industry and unleash the next phase of our ambitions, taking this company to the next level,” said Stephen Gould President Justin Golden. “We’re honored to welcome these amazing individuals to our SG family as we begin this next chapter in our history.”
