Our image

Our logo, inspired by the inner workings of timepieces, symbolizes the dynamics of individual units that, together, find the rhythm and create the strength to advance in the same direction. Each circle consists of a large outer sphere representing talent, a smaller, brighter sphere within symbolizing engaged people and, in the middle, teams cooperating to achieve shared goals. The points where the circles touch signify that the interrelationship of disciplines is critical to success.
