What's In A Name?
When I decided to start this company, it wasn't difficult to know what I would name it. It would be my family name, Pope.
I have always been taught and strongly believe that a person’s name is the most important asset that they have in life. As the Proverb says, "A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold." I take my family name seriously and I am proud of the history of hard work, success, and integrity that it represents.
With Pope Corporation, I commit to honor the name that those before me have spent lifetimes building and that those after me will inherit. By putting my name on this company, I am putting my most valuable asset on the line every day. This is as firm of a commitment to hard work, success, and integrity as I can possibly make to my clients.
