As 2017 winds down and we look towards a promising new year, we'd like to share a few words from Q2's founder Hank Seale about the future—and the amazing opportunities granted to all of us here at Q2.
"Who would've thought that a redneck little country kid could end up being involved with not just a technology company, but a technology company that's going to change the financial industry?" asks Hank.
"It's amazing to me," he says. "It's a huge opportunity. And it's a joy in my life." Hank goes on to express gratitude for the people he gets to work with and the importance of their shared work. "Think of what we get to do every day. And the legacy that we're building. We're going to change people's lives in thousands of little communities, because we helped their community FI stay in business-—or to excel."
"We're going to bring to [digital banking] things that have never been there before," says Hank. "It's very exciting to me. To be in the position to change an industry is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity."
He finishes by saying he feels blessed to be at Q2 every day—and hopes the rest of the Q2 team does as well. It's safe to say that we all share Hank's sentiment—and his excitement for the future.
Watch the video below to hear it all straight from "the little country kid" helping to change an industry.
Happy holidays from all of us at Q2. We hope you're also looking forward to all the promise, potential, and opportunity of 2018—and beyond.
