We have three major values in our company. … They were selected by our people, not by the top management of the company. And that is the reason why these values are so powerful.
The first one is win together. Winning is only possible if it is a collective winning. And we work cross-functional across functionally to do it all together.
The second one is agility. We were facing a near-death experience back in 2012. This near-death experience is a powerful engine for the future. It gives us the sense that we need to be agile because the world is more and more chaotic.
And the third value of our company is efficiency and effectiveness. We understand that resources are scarce — human resources, financial resources, planning resources, they are scarce, and we have to do more with less. The only thing that we ask our employees is to act in the company as if they were making decisions at home.
This is what they understand at the end of the day. And we are blessed with that.
So what I would like to tell you tonight is, first of all, how blessed I am to be working with Mike.
I really hope that everything will go smoothly. And so far [that] is the case and you can see through our friendship, through our relationship, that we are really doing our best to make things happen and that I think we are on the right path.
Secondly, I would like to thank you all for recognizing the efforts of the PSA employees. They are the winners. …
And third, I would like to tell you that I am extremely excited about the changes that we are going to face.
Of course, 10 years down the road, the industry will be very different from what it is today. But technology, human skills, human talents will make a difference. And this is what I am very confident on. Thank you very much.
