“Hey Bill, looking at this photo brings a smile to my face. It was my debut as a member of senior staff. Lots of highlights Bill, here is my top 5 Bill list:
1 Client focus- building out international businesses, and your energy on serving clients globally.
2 Global mindset- no matter the setting, the culture, the country, you blend in and always adapt to how people want to be treated.
3 Positivity- the glass is always half full, and it is such a pick-up to be in your presence when we all need that little bit of positivity.
4 Fitness- in mind, body and spirit you are always learning, reading, training, and that is such an inspiration to all of us.
5 Music- you and I both have similar taste in music, and our night out at the concert shows the coolness of William McNabb.
My wife Anne is a fan of yours, and my daughter Lyla always asks me about the boss big Bill. It means so much, how you know and have connected with the James family. You have had a huge impact on me, Bill, and I still remember the call in London to accept your offer to join your team – a career highlight. Expect my call for the next concert we can go to.”
