Sometimes it is nice to be able to report on people rather than financial gains.
Like many I have watched and read the news about well-known people in sports, in show business and in finance around the country and the world who have not acted with respect and accountability with others. Recently we gathered nearly all of our PAMCO staff and on site employees to discuss the issue together with our EAP provider facilitating the meeting.
What an experience. I have long admired the work ethic of our company family but this meeting left me energized about the profound integrity of all our company staff. During our meeting I heard how each person respects their fellow employees and is committed to help them get the job done. It was touching to hear stories about how they view themselves and their desire to serve others. We talked about keeping promises to clients, residents, business users and each other. Our company staff is interested in the “response and the results” we bring to everyone on our assignments, as well as being committed to civil rights, personal rights and personal integrity.
This meeting confirms the company values which still come from our founder Paul Ash who was a man of his word, a man who was committed to excellence and trust. Although Paul Ash is no longer with us, his values still serve as our compass both morally as well as from the standard of hard work and success.
I am confident our company will achieve many high goals we have set for this year. I am confident of our success due to the hard work and integrity of each member of our company family.

Remembering Paul Ash – Maccabiah Record Holder
Longtime Arizona Daily Star sports editor Abe Chanin* dubbed Paul Ash* the “strongest Jew in the world” and helped him raise some of the money he needed to go the Maccabiah Games in Israel in 1957.
A military veteran and avid card player, Paul Ash raised the rest of the funds by winning card games as he criss-crossed the United States on the military transport flights that got him to New York in time to catch his flight to Israel. He won the first of his two gold medals that year in the sport of weightlifting, breaking all records in the 198-lb class. He competed and won the gold medal again in 1961.
