Dr. Rebecca S. Hage Thomley, Orion Associates

Reason for starting
It was not a planned start but I fell in love with the opportunities and challenges of running a business. The more we grew, the more and diverse business we explored. There is nothing like the creativity owning your own business allows for.

How do you define success?
I believe that a truly successful organization is one that is not only successful in its line of business, but is also successful as a contributor to the community and the world. We chose to be that kind of business and are committed to creating a world of hope. I also believe that business success must be defined by how you interact in others, particularly in your choice to respect, support and mentor those with whom you work.
