You can’t guarantee that any client will stay with you forever, but if you keep attracting good people, you’ll also keep attracting, hopefully, good clients. And so this has been a place that really treats people well. Tuten: You’ve talked to me about your philosophy on the importance of people and nurturing people, and you talked to me about how you had come to join The Martin Agency and work for Harry Jacobs. What’s been the highlight of your work experiences? Hughes: Well, the thing I’m happiest about is I have a fabulous family, and on the professional side, it’s that I’m surrounded by such wonderful, inspiring, and talented people.
