Valued Clients and Partners:
Thank you for the trust you have placed in Harris Williams to serve as your advisor. Since our founding in 1991, we have worked extremely hard to do two basic things: hire the very best talent in the market and provide our clients best-in-class service and outcomes. These simple yet powerful founding principles have been our north star for 29 years, and today we are writing to affirm those commitments to you.
Continued Pursuit of Excellence
We face a challenge that is unique in modern times, but our firm is nimble and we believe we are well-positioned to continue providing the very best advice and service through this volatile period. Our group of seasoned, loyal professionals has stared down challenges with our clients many times in the past – together, we have successfully navigated uncharted waters and, without question, we will do so again now.
Adapted Work Environment
Like many of you, we have taken several actions to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. All of our employees have been strongly encouraged to work from home, and they have been equipped to do so without sacrificing connectivity or effectiveness across our teams. Until it is safe to do otherwise, we will favor tele- and video-conferencing over in-person meetings, as well as limit travel to the greatest extent possible. In all things, we will follow authoritative guidance to protect the well-being of our people, our clients, and our communities. Taking these steps without sacrificing in any way the superior service that you deserve and expect will require a level of teamwork that is the hallmark of our firm. Through this challenge, as always, our commitment remains to you.
Our Sustained Commitment to You
It is times like these when what makes Harris Williams truly special – our devotion to our clients and to one another – is most needed, and most evident. Thank you again for your trust in us. You are in the best hands possible with your Harris Williams team, but please do not hesitate to contact any one of us directly should you ever have any questions or concerns.
