As November graces us with autumn’s touch, I’m reminded of the beauty in change and write this with a heart full of gratitude. Over 20 years ago, I was introduced to wonderful man, Arnie Rintzler, who became an important mentor to me both in life and in business. Sadly, Arnie recently passed away but not without touching the lives of many in a positive way, especially mine.

Arnie helped give me the courage to embrace change, branch out on my own and start IT Radix. Along the way, I’ve been fortunate enough to surround myself with a great team of individuals whose company I enjoy and whose individual contributions to supporting our clients (and each other) I respect. I am so grateful to them all. Sometimes working in IT can be stressful. Marybeth, our COO, likens it to working in an ER. We respond to IT issues and help resolve them.

Happily, not everything in IT is an emergency—we had the honor of helping a life sciences startup of 2 employees grow to over 200 and bring a drug to market that will change thousands of lives. IT may not be glamorous, but it is part of the foundation of so many successful organizations. I’m grateful to be a part of their success.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
