The Forefront Team has much to be thankful for as we celebrate today
By The Forefront Staff
Thanksgiving is another great day for reflection. As you spend today with friends and family, keep in mind what you are thankful for. As a staff, we gathered together and talked about what we are thankful for both professionally and personally. Take a look below.
George Bozonelos- Co-Founder and CEO: “I’m thankful for being surrounded by an amazing group of friends, family, and colleagues. I’m thankful that we live in a era with unlimited access to technology and information, where you can take ideas and make them a reality faster than ever before. Most of all, as a son of immigrants, I’m thankful we live in a country that, in my opinion, has created the perfect environment to bring these dreams to life.
Anthony D’Amico- Co-Founder and CMO:“It’s so easy to get caught up in the day-to-day of life and business while losing sight of the things in our lives we should be thankful for. Here are a few of mine…
– I am thankful for my family and friends who inspire me on a daily basis.
– I’m thankful for my business partners for making everything we’we’ve accomplished and continue to accomplish possible.
– I’m thankful for our team for those very same reasons.”
Gerald Mathews- Manager of Editorial Development: “I am thankful for the ultimate personal high that I have had this year in starting the next stage of my life by getting married to the love of my life and being able to celebrate that with all of my loved ones and friends. I am also thankful for the struggles that I have had to endure professionally as they have served as the greatest learning experience for me and helped me understand what is truly important for me in my career.”
Kate Bauer- Creative Director: “I am thankful for my family and friends, coffee, Netflix, good typography, the City of Chicago, my adorably weird rescue cat, and that I get to go to Mexico for Christmas this year and escape the cold weather (for a week, anyway.)”
Caitlin Cunningham- Editorial Director: “This Thanksgiving–and every day!–I am thankful for a big and growing, crazy, loving family (special shout out to Mom for bringing me into the world 20-some years ago today); hilarious, brutally honest, lifelong friends; and making a living doing work I truly get a kick out of.”
Jaclyn Crawford- Assignment Editor: “ There is so much to be thankful for this year. I’m thankful and blessed by my job and the people I’m surrounded by. I’m thankful for my husband, the first year of marriage, and our beautiful home in Chicago. Im thankful for my friends who are like family, and my family who have supported me in one of the biggest years of my life. There are so many more things to be thankful for, it is hard to list them all!“
Demetra Zougras- Editorial Intern: ” “I’m thankful for my wonderful family and friends who support me in following my dreams. I’m thankful for the amazing opportunities I’ve experienced to help my achieve my goals. And I’m thankful for being able to stay positive during hard times.”
