“The moving finger writes, and having writ, moves on…” — The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
Forty-five years have elapsed since I began a career in manufacturing working as an injection molding machine tender on the midnight shift. Events, education, and experiences led into a position as a manufacturing applications consultant some twenty years ago. I will be retiring from full-time consulting at Algorithm effective December 31, 2018. Barb and I plan to devote more time to family, volunteer work, and travel.
From our clients, I have learned much about different types of business, methods, and styles of managing the challenges of business. I most value the personal interactions with you, hearing about your challenges at work, your family life, and your personal perspectives. I will miss interacting with you both professionally and personally.
My colleagues at Algorithm are part of my extended family. In nearly eighteen years together, we have worked, talked, sorrowed, and celebrated professional achievements and life events. They are the brightest and best of solution thinkers. I’m always impressed by their technical abilities, critical thinking processes, and organization skills. I trust them implicitly as partners. I know that they will do an excellent job of caring for the clients and projects that will be transitioned to them in the coming weeks. If you have any questions about this change, please direct them to Mimi Bertram ( firstname.lastname@example.org ).
Please accept my thanks to you for the professional opportunities to be of service and for the personal moments of sharing our life experiences.
