“While we have an accountability to grow revenue and grow income, we also have an accountability to recognize the society and sustainability efforts that consumers are asking us to be a part of — and that is changing the dynamics for how we think about building our businesses. That, to me, is how we're starting to plant the seeds for a more optimistic future.”

- Bob Liodice, ANA CEO
