Message from Andy Hilliard, Chief Executive Officer

By Andy Hilliard | May 16, 2020


Let's focus on what we can control and not what we can't. 

With the many varied opinions and models competing to define the “current world” versus the “old world” and the “future world” we would all be better off by accepting what has fundamentally changed and how we all can adapt and prosper.

What has fundamentally changed:

  • The remote work lifestyle will massively erode the enterprise. Companies have already made huge investments for this and will not abandon these efforts when the virus fades. 

  • There will be more focus on being lean and cost cutting. The rent line item is a major one.

  • Digitalization and the reduction of human dependencies will ratchet up even faster.

  • Business priorities will be increasingly centered around cost containment, efficiency, optimizing the business and diversifying risk.

To the extent possible within most every business model, the mantra will be to optimize distributed collaboration to achieve business goals while driving down costs, ensuring business continuity, creating redundancy and increasing flexibility and agility.

While uncertainty is a fundamental attribute of innovation, we are confidently certain that our future will include the above. Fortunately, Accelerance currently operates under these inevitable principles that await us and our mission is to arm our clients with similar models so that they too can move ahead confidently and aggressively and when those small, medium or even existential threats re-emerge, they are equipped to survive and even thrive.

Sincerely,

newsig

Andy Hilliard
