PRIME AE’s culture and philosophy align perfectly with mine. I’m a very optimistic person, looking at the glass as being “half-full.” There is so much great talent in the fine folks who work at PRIME AE! I foresee a lot of growth and expansion across business lines and geographical areas, especially in New England.
