Pioneering is our first phase. I think our second phase was Fortitude. We just stuck with it. We believed in our customers.  We believed in what we planned to do. And we found our niche. I think today we’re moving into Solutions Provision, where because of our longstanding position, there is an understanding that we’re able to deliver great solutions to customers.  And I think in that way, long term – we’re the trusted name.
