On the morning of September 9th, Deasy Penner Podley partners and staff members traveled from all across the city of Los Angeles to gather at Union Station for an exciting fall kick-off meeting. The venue of Union Station was carefully selected for its historical as well as symbolic significance, as described by chairman Mike Deasy in his opening speech. Union Station is an icon of Los Angeles architecture; combining Art Deco, Mission Revival, and Streamline Moderne styles. The historic station is also a symbol of community and togetherness. As the largest railroad passenger terminal in the Western United States, Union Station brings together travelers from many different communities. This idea of strength through community was a major focus point for Chairman Mike Deasy and CEO George Penner as they discussed both the current and future goals for Deasy Penner Podley as a company. Other topics of discussion included new tools and strategies to drum up business as well as an update on the auctioning platform plumBid. And of course, in keeping with DPP’s efforts to be an eco-conscious company, partners and staff from Santa Monica to Glendora were encouraged to ride the metro to and from the event.
It’s together, stronger and together, forward for Deasy Penner Podley!
