A message to those who’ve shared my journey…

The last 50 years of my life have been consumed by a quest for finding different and better ways of building a company. In the beginning the only things I had going for me were the lessons I learned from watching my father’s approach to business: his values, approach to his people and how he dealt with the myriad of inevitable challenges that are the hallmark of any venture. However, the driving force for him, was his love for the people and recognizing they were the greatest reason for any of his successes.

 

The absolute secret to any of my personal achievements can be solely attributed to the loyalty and support of the amazing people I’ve worked with over these past 5 decades and for this I will be eternally grateful. Of course, I recognize my style has always been to challenge, not nurture, but watching people respond and rise to the occasion is testimony to the meaningfulness of all the personal contributions for which I am extremely grateful. 

Conventional is not a word I’ve ever been associated with in both my business and personal life. To all of those who have traveled this journey with me, you’ve made me so proud, happy and inspired me in so many ways. I cannot thank you enough for everything you’ve done for me, my family and everyone associated with our various business endeavours. Most importantly, thank you for your loyalty, support and genuine friendship. 

 

Sincerely, 

Mogens Smed
