Personal

Having spent a summer or two in his youth working in the steel mills of Ohio, Alan appreciates the relatively dust-free environment of our high-rise office building. The “mills” were nonetheless a great teacher of the value of a dollar and what a team of people devoted to the task at hand can achieve. Alan applies the lessons learned to his current profession and knows that every task, no matter how small, is important to the success of a project. As is oft repeated, “For want of a nail...the battle was lost.” Every battle worth pursuing is one that should be won; that is the goal Alan strives to achieve for every client he and SulmeyerKupetz represent. It is also one of many virtues he shares with his two young sons, both on and off the tennis court.
