Looking Out for Your Financial Future

25 - Nov 2020

A Message of Thanks

During a year such as this one, finding things to be grateful for can be difficult. Yet we at Telarray are sincerely grateful for you, and grateful, too, that our business has not been impacted by COVID to the extent other industries have experienced. Despite that, we are also empathetic to the millions of lives that continue to be impacted by the pandemic through no fault of their own.

Everyone here at Telarray takes the sincerest responsibility for and pride in your faith and trust in us. I see it in how the team serves you every day. We strive for perfection and speed, and hope to provide you with financial options you might not have been aware of. It’s a fast-paced and challenging environment, and we thrive in it. The stickier and more difficult the answers to any financial problem or question, the happier the team seems to be. You give us purpose and meaning, and nothing makes us happier than seeing you and your family succeed.

We have been chosen one of the Memphis Business Journals’ Best Places to Work in Memphis, an honor that makes me extra thankful this week. As the team strives to provide you with world-class advice, service, and support, the partners of the firm strive to provide the team with the resources and structure they need to make this a reality. This award involves anonymous feedback from the entire staff on how they feel about the organization. If I’m honest, the entire partner group is beaming.

We know this holiday season will be different, but we hope that you and the ones you love have a wonderful holiday just the same, and that bright spots shine through for you.
