I like people who think outside the box. I’ve been at Guild for more than twenty years. In every hiring situation, I look for some spark of creativity, some talent that sets each person apart, and I try to bring the most talented people I can find here to Guild.
To serve the needs and expectations of customers, Guild needs to be able to change quickly. What works for customers in one location may not make sense in another. So, I look for talented managers who understand their markets and I make sure they have the tools and support they need.
Our technology systems at Guild are the result of this focus on talent. We designed our systems here, originally engaging nearly thirty programmers in an extended project during the 1980s. That effort was a defining period of our history, as it placed us in the running to grow and to manage to different situations efficiently. We’re still making use of the heart of those systems, and are always making them better.
When markets change, as they do, it seems, all the time, I need to be able to look to my people here at Guild for solutions. When I say that we are flexible or adaptable, I’m really saying that I have a team that I know can solve any problem that comes up, at any time.
