Notes from the President

Ken Hilton - President Red Wing Software

March 1st marks a milestone for me. I have now been with the company in some capacity for 40 years. 40 years!? Is that even possible? To give a little background, I started in a support position. Forty years ago, having a personal computer wasn’t too common, so in addition to providing software, we also sold computers, printers, and the like. So being a computer nerd, I was a good fit for the job. Over the years, I learned enough about software, accounting, and payroll to be dangerous. Enough about me. I really want to highlight our team’s longevity and knowledge.
To begin with, our average years of service throughout the organization is over 21 years. If I bragged about each person, this article would be several pages long, so I’ll focus on a few, and over time, each team member should show up in this newsletter. Here are a few examples:
Roxie, the voice of Red Wing Software, for over 32 years.
Larry, our internal technology guru, officially over 25 years. (Unofficially, I think he was stuffing envelopes for the company before he graduated 8th grade.)
George, a developer and internet technology expert, with over 33 years.
Tim, our Support Manager, has completed almost 30 years.
I shouldn’t have even started listing names, as I like to brag about our entire staff. We also appreciate new people and fresh ideas, our newest team member (just four months), Jake, hit the ground running. If you’ve had an opportunity to talk to him in his support role, you know about his commitment to seeing an issue through to the end. I would be remiss not to mention the many customers who have been with Red Wing Software since the beginning.
We have been extremely fortunate to have a great, dedicated team throughout Red Wing Software for a long time. We plan to continue this history of longevity for many years to come.
