At the onset of each new year, Nth Generation (Nth) brings the entire organization together for reflection and planning. We all look forward to connecting with each other, sharing gratitude, and mapping out key strategies in our business evolution.
Our founders, Jan Baldwin, CEO, and Rich Baldwin, CIO, kicked off the 2019 event with genuine appreciation for the hard work of the staff. They lead by example in caring for our employees, clients, and the community. Jan and Rich developed Nth with a foundation committed to their ethos. They understand the connection between having a staff which is empowered and thriving, to sustaining happy long-term clients.
Jan reminded us that our corporate mission focuses on delivering “awesome” technologies, security services, and solutions. We refer to this as, “customer service to the Nth Degree.” Each person in the company lends positive energy and creative ideas to serving our clients. We collaborate on seeking creative solutions to solve complex problems. We strive to deliver our best possible work, and are willing to learn and improve in a cycle of continuous development. This nurturing environment brings us all a sense of pride and accomplishment. I am personally honored to have just celebrated my 10 year anniversary with Nth Generation!
The IT and Security landscape is constantly changing. Our customers need better, faster, safer, and more efficient strategies to accelerate their business. Nth embraces this challenge by delivering thought leadership and proven methods for realizing successful outcomes. We will continue to innovate and provide the highest level support to our clients, and along the way we will enjoy hearty laughs and new adventures together!
Here are a few images captured during special moments with my Nth team:
- Robert Williams III, (aka Rambo), one of our beloved Senior Solutions Engineers, works around the clock in customer data centers helping with various IT efforts. He also happens to be an amazing chef, hailing from generations of South Carolina cooks. His BBQ is legendary among Nth staff and clients alike. In preparation of our company’s 2019 kickoff, held at the beautiful South Coast Winery & Resort, Rambo prepared a huge batch of his special BBQ sauce. He hand packed the delicacy into (17) squeeze bottles, labeled “hot or mild” for all of us to enjoy with meals.
- After our successful 2018 Symposium, the staff was treated to a play at the Old Globe Theater. “The Heart of Rock and Roll” based on the life of Huey Lewis got everyone dancing. To our surprise, Huey was in attendance at the show. He was a great sport taking pics with Nth fans!
- We take every opportunity to enjoy a meal together! Kathy Kirk, our affectionately dubbed “Chief Happiness Officer,” is our internal activity organizer. She is always planning potlucks and fun festivities. At our Thanksgiving luncheon, Da’Neil Olsen surprised everyone with amazing live music.
I am grateful that our leadership empowers us all to service our clients based on ethical principles and technical acumen. We appreciate the cherished community relationships established over the past 25+ years. Nth Generation had another fantastic year in 2018 and we look forward to continued innovation. It is our goal to help you accelerate your business and delight your own valuable customers. We have exciting things planned, so keep in touch!
