Last week’s turnout was far beyond my expectations. Mark…what can I say? That you agreed to host the event after seeing the effort that Wendi and Troy put into Charleston is surprising enough. That you pulled it off so flawlessly and so graciously is a tribute to your character. All I can say is THANK YOU.

In fact, thank all of you for attending and thank you for giving your time to Polk. That out of the zillion speaker companies, you’ve picked Polk is truly inspiring.

Many of our employees don’t often meet customers. Meeting you and sharing lunch last Friday has increased their pride in the company and their contributions. For them, you’ve put a face on the customer. Knowing that there are people like you that care so much for the products and the heritage of Polk Audio makes us realize just how lucky we are.

See you in Charleston.

Al

    Al,

    Some employees I met with thought I was a vendor. When I told them I was only a customer they were still happy. The fact that they took a little time away from their day to say hello was great. Sharing lunch was a super idea. Both seeing and talking with employees was a thrill not soon to be forgotten.
