Firstly, I am proud to be joining a company that has made pet safety and happiness their primary objective. We don't just sell products, we are improving lives and bringing joy to pets and their families every day, and that is a hugely inspiring purpose. Second is the team and culture. Business performance is almost inevitable when an organization has a great sense of purpose and talented, inspired people who love what they do and know why they do it. It is super inspiring that many leaders in Radio Systems have been there for more than half the company's life. That means we have a very rare and special combination of talent and deep expertise to improve the lives of pets through their work.
