Congratulations to our Mission, Vision, Values Quarter Four Award Winner from Florida: Bill Lentulay (pictured above left with a client). Here is Bill’s MVV nomination from Darlene Free: “Bill goes above and beyond for all our clients. He works tirelessly on “his” job club meetings trying to make them both fun and informative. He is great at motivating people to be the best they can be, and lets them know that they can be proud of their accomplishments and themselves. As a partner in the office, he is always willing to do whatever needs to be done, even if it changes his schedule.  I can count on Bill to be there no matter the need.  Thank you Bill for all the hard work and helping our clients feel cared about and that they are your number one priority.”
