Christmas Letter

December 30, 2013

Dear friends,

It seems like just yesterday I was writing you a Christmas letter for 2012.

I recall reflecting on the amazing year that was nearing to a close and wondering how 2013 could possibly top the ride 2012 had been.

I’m happy to report that my high expectations were shattered & surpassed. And that, my friend, is thanks to YOU.

MPA has always been a company built on relationships. In 2013 those relationships paid off. We launched a national mobile app, along with a global time tracking integration for the world’s best help desk. We built relationships with some truly amazing people. Both locally and all across the United States. We demonstrated that “small town” can equal big dreams, high tech, & world-class talent.

Relationships matter. So does passion. At MPA we’re passionate about a couple of things: Rock Star Creative & Rock Solid Technology.

Our creative team helped launch the career of a rising country artist, reshaped the image of a technology cooperative, produced top-notch videos, all the while marketing and branding our own products.

Our IT & TECH team worked tirelessly to provide the responsive service we’ve become known for. We’ve worked hard to do more than just put out fires, but to also implement long-term, forward-thinking solutions that add value to our customer’s businesses and strengthen the most important of relationships: the long-term ones.

As you have no-doubt surmised, I’m pretty enthusiastic as I reflect on 2013. But, I won’t ramble on anymore about WHAT we’ve done, because the most important thing is WHY we do it. The WHY is YOU. I feel privileged (and I know our whole team feels the same) to be able to work with so many smart, brilliant, and passionately driven people.

So, without further ado, Thank You for allowing us to share 2013 with you. I can’t wait to bore you with another one of these letters of gratitude at the end of 2014!

Have a Very Merry Christmas & let’s make 2014 the Best Year Yet!

P.S. Moire asked me to point out that, had he written this letter, it would have been decidingly more entertaining. What can I say? He’s a tough act to follow!
