"A family business is a living being: it grows, changes, and must adapt to an ever-changing environment. While it is important to remember and honor the past, it is perhaps more important to chart a path not just for the company, but for the owning family as well". ~ Andrew Cretors, President, C. Cretors and Co., G5
