Message from George
The financial results of 2021 are almost a completed footnote to the RQ story. However, considering the business environment, the events in peoples lives, and the unusual times that we are in, these are not footnotes, they are essentially a book. Reviewing the things that made 2021 the best year of RQ’s life to date is more than we can do justice to in this Flywheel, but we will try and scratch the surface.
If we were writing the book prior to 2021, knowing that we were in a pandemic and would have supply chain chaos, dramatic inflation, political upheaval, etc., it is inconceivable that we would write the story as it has played out. In fact, the story is one of people: RQ people doing incredible things in the face of a very stormy world.
We have had trials, tribulations, and difficulties, and yet you have proven how important people are to the success of this organization. People that serve a higher purpose than themselves. People that are self motivated and are problem solvers. People that are committed to improving our markets, themselves, and RQ’s capabilities, even when others are saying we just can’t do that or things are good enough.
I think this year needs to be celebrated. And, we are already starting to write the next chapter of 2022. Let’s keep writing our history in the same vein of 2021. Yes, we have hit it out of the park this year. But, how much fun is just maintaining the status quo? You are a team of winners. The hardest thing is to reach the top and stay at the top. I have no doubt, that the next mountain is steeper and higher than this one, and you are just the team to plant the RQ flag on next year’s mountaintop.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am proud to be on your team.
George H. Rogers, III
