After hours, the sales team was joined by the entire Oakville office staff for an evening of socializing, eating, drinking and team building. The meeting offered a great opportunity for the whole team to get together in both professional and social environments and have some fun in the context of articulating and discussing our corporate goals and objectives for the coming year. Several new constructive ideas and suggestions came from the two workshops conducted during our 2.5 day meeting and we hope to implement most of these during the weeks and months ahead.
Participation by everyone involved was very encouraging and the feedback so far is definitely positive. The stage is now set for us to have another great year and I look forward to playing whatever role I can in making this year, our F2014, a record breaking success.
Unfortunately, not every recent development here has been a new beginning. The company and every member of it suffered the loss last week of Josef Speer to lung cancer. Joe has been a valuable member of the Service Department at Davis Controls since April 1997, when we had the good luck and good fortune to add the Barber Coleman line of temperature controls to our product offering and Joe Speer to our staff.
Joe passed away peacefully at home with his family by his side on Thursday, February 28, 2013 in his 55th year. Beloved husband of Betty and dearly loved father of Jennifer, Samantha and Matthew, Josef will be sadly missed by all of us here at Davis Controls.
