Message from the CEO
At RiverFront, our culture informs our journey together in supporting our clients; supporting each other; and supporting the communities in which we live. It calls us all to a purpose greater than ourselves. Central to our beliefs is that we will treat each other with respect recognizing the power of Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. We call it J.E.D.I.
Justice means our associates behave in a way that is fair, equal, and balanced for everyone. We all long to be seen for who we are and judged by our true character. Equity demands we pursue fair treatment and a balanced playing field for everyone – offering genuine respect for all people in our intentions and all our interactions. Diversity brings wisdom and allows our decision making to be more robust by considering the different perspectives each of us brings to any situation we face together. Inclusion means striving to create a welcoming environment where we see each other as individuals, with unique gifts that together weave a tapestry that defines who we are.
Together, we have committed ourselves to continuous improvement, understanding and enlightenment. Our JEDI journey is our path to build the company of our dreams.
- Pete Quinn, President & CEO
