My work anniversary was on February 1st. It’s hard to believe that I have been working with Signature Worldwide for 22 years! I love to see people’s reactions when I tell them that I have been with the company that long; I always wonder what they are thinking, but won’t say, especially the younger folks. When I first started with the company, we were a very small, home based company with a few dozen employees. Needless to say, in the past 22 years, I have seen change; some changes that were minor and some that were significant, but somehow, I managed to survive them all.
