This blog has taken me months to write. Thoughts kept spinning in and out of my head. Should I write it? Will it serve a purpose?
We lost a member of the Berdon family a few short months ago. Michael Gelbtuch worked directly for me in the SALT Group. We had just promoted Michael to manager and were looking forward to more great things to come — for him and for Berdon.
I cannot even begin to detail all that I learned from Michael. But the most important of those lessons was clearly the patience he taught me to have with everyone. Whether it be a client, another employee at Berdon, an auditor, or one of my partners, Michael made it his business to listen to all and to understand their point of view.
