Some Thankful Reflections from President/CEO Dan Costa

Starting a new business in a marketplace already saturated with standard and substandard
competitors is a daunting task. It involves working each day to build a brand, create your identity,
and achieve recognition for the effort and dedication of the staff who toil every hour in every

As the Thanksgiving season passes, I am reminded of a few things I am thankful for. I am
thankful for the OPS staff who give of themselves each and every day to provide the level of
service our clients expect and deserve. I am thankful for our clients and the continued trust
they place in us to ensure their residents and their brand are protected and respected. I am
thankful for the continued opportunity to build our brand, to employ top quality staff, and to
help to play a positive part in helping to improve the image of an industry who has for so long
been needed, but rarely valued. I am thankful for the organizations who recognized OPS for our
growth within the region. Finally, I am thankful for 2017 and look forward to the challenges and
improvements we will make in 2018 and forward.
