The True Meaning of Partnership

Oct 5, 2022

In the wake of Hurricane Ian, our thoughts are with all who were impacted by this unpredictable storm. From our home city of St. Petersburg, we navigated the uncertainty in true Kobie fashion – rallying together to continue supporting clients while facing our own adversity. Chief Customer Officer, Wendy Culpepper, expressed sentiments of gratitude to both our teammates and clients through this letter about what true partnership means.

“We often talk about how partnership is defined and tested in the most trying of times. In this past week, mother nature tested many of our Kobie Floridians requiring us to lean on our internal and external partners. As many of us begin the process of cleaning up homes and returning to normal, we are keenly aware that many of our friends and family just an hour south of us will not be so fortunate.” – Wendy Culpepper 

In times like these, community is more important than ever. Many of our Kobie teammates are using their paid volunteer hours to go help those affected, and we hope you will join us in extending a helping hand to our Florida neighbors who are facing hardships in the wake of Hurricane Ian.   

Below are some places where you can give your time, resources, or money to help communities impacted by Hurricane Ian: 

The Kobie team would like to extend a special thank you to all our clients and partners. Wendy said it best;

“We have experienced client support and partnership that has fueled our souls during these difficult times. Ranging from words of encouragement to rescheduling meetings or requests, we have seen the best from all of you and want to truly say “Thank You.”  Thank you for your support, patience, and most of all – care for our Kobie teammates and their loved ones.”

We’re all in this together.
