To Our Community of Supporters,
As we wrap up 2019 here at Pursuit, we want to slow things down a bit and just take the time to say thank you for the overwhelming support we have received this past year.
To the Pursuit team who has grown significantly in number and risen to the occasion as we broke records, pushed our limits and learned some tough lessons the past couple of years, thank you! You’ve helped our company take massive steps towards our vision. I’m proud to have you at my side. I can’t wait to see how far we can take this. Thank you for putting your whole hearts into Pursuit.
To our amazing customers who have entrusted us with outfitting you for your biggest moments—from the thousands who came through for a suit to the hundreds of couples who chose to have Pursuit dress their wedding party this year, we have heard some incredible stories of the places your suits will go, and this brings so much meaning to our work. There are millions of places to buy a suit—thank you for trusting us.
To the extended Pursuit team—the collaborators, agencies, consultants and suppliers we work with daily to make our small company run better and grow into the company we dream of becoming, thank you for bringing your expertise and passion to the table and believing as strongly in what we are building as we do.
To our communities, thank you for embracing something local, something independent, something different. Columbus and Cincinnati have rallied around us in so many ways that we cannot begin to list, allowing us to work with some of the brightest to make an impact while learning from the best.
To our partners who have taken us along on some of the most incredible journeys these past couple of years—from winning Olympic gold and celebrating on an international stage, to touring the country and performing on national television in your Pursuit gear. We are inspired by your dedication and passion. Being around greatness pushes us to continually better ourselves.
To our mentors who help us stay the course and are blazing a trail we aim to follow you down, thank you for your openness and generosity. If we made a list of the folks in the Columbus and Cincinnati business community we hope to emulate, it’d be a list of friends and mentors who we can call for help whenever.
To our families and our friends who stand by us when the dream we are describing is not yet the reality you see. You show up for it all, support us when we need encouragement, understand when the days are long and the stress is elevated. Our Pursuit team feels like a family in large part because of those each of us bring into the fold from our personal lives. Thank you for always having our backs and making us feel like a not-so-small business.
It’s easy to get caught up in measuring success in our business by revenue, suits sold, stores opened, or employees hired—but we hope this letter shows that those things pale in comparison to the success measured by the gratitude we feel for the people surrounding us. We look forward to all that’s to come in 2020, and we can’t wait to do it with you by our side!
Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
