2014: idgroup Celebrates 25 Years!

A Note from Mona’s Desk

It’s here again, the end of another year. This year, like every year’s end is an interesting mixture of reflection and anticipation.

As the calendar turns to 2014, idgroup will begin its 25th year in business. In 1989, after resigning my position at the University of West Florida, I took my last paycheck, put a down payment on 400 sq. foot office in Downtown Pensacola, bought a desk and a phone and prayed I could sell something to make the next months rent. Tenacity, great people with a drive for excellence (and a little luck) and here we are 25 years later—amazing!

I am proud of birthing idgroup, but most proud that today the organization has superseded me. There is no doubt that we have the best team we have ever had, but they stand on the shoulders of the many talented people who have passed our way. Don’t let people tell you, “talent doesn’t live in Pensacola.” And, if you are reading this, you are a part of our success, either as a client, friend or family.

I believe our success has been defined by our focus on building great teams of multi-talented people, doing great work for clients we believe in and having some fun in the process.

So our commitment moving forward is to continue to do it our way, trust the process and hold fast to the values that have defined us over the years: respect, collaboration, responsibility and excellence.

Every ending is a beginning—filled with renewed energy, unimagined possibilities and hope. I can’t wait to see what’s next.

Happy New Year!
