As Managing Partner Scott Hadley retires and rides off into the sunset, we celebrated his 21 years with the firm and the legacy that he has left. He passes the torch to long-standing Partner Eileen Sheridan as she assumes her new role with the firm as Managing Partner.
On Friday, June 22, BPW hosted a gathering of the team at MOXI, The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation. We reminisced good times had with Scott over the years and heard heartfelt words and stories shared by his partners, as well as his Business Solutions colleagues, who Scott has led and worked closely with for many years. We also had fun exploring, experiencing and playing at MOXI, an organization that Scott has dedicated much of his time to.
