Testimonials from Friends of SoBA

Mark Burnham

UM Business Administration '84, Director of Finance for Hawthorn Retirement Group based in Vancouver, WA and Executive Board member for Treasure State Bank in Missoula.

"My favorite ethics quote is from William Colson, founder of Holiday Retirement Corp. 'You never go wrong doing the right thing.'"

Dr. Tim Manuel

Rudyard B. Goode Professor of Finance, University of Montana

"In finance we always teach that the firm's goal is to maximize shareholder wealth. Sometimes however we do not talk about how to do that. Serving people by making a quality product or delivering a great service efficiently over the long term is how you do that. That's the bottom line. If you make dollars the bottom line, you have already thrown out ethics and values."
