Esprit De Corps – noun -
Feelings of loyalty, enthusiasm, and devotion to a group among people who are members of the group.
Never have I been more proud to be associated with this great company and the great people that work for it.
I’ve been with Market Basket for 18 years. In most companies 18 years is a long time but at Market Basket this makes me no more than a rookie. Like everyone else I started part time and through hard work, and outstanding mentorship, have been able to rise to the rank of produce supervisor. I love what I do, who I work for, and who I work with. The fact that all of this is being threatened is very sad.
There is not much I can say that has not already been said by others. Arthur T is a great man and a visionary leader. The fact that this BOD is questioning his leadership and performance is senseless and without merit. Shareholders of publicly traded companies would pay a premium for leadership of this type. He has positioned Market Basket to not only grow our brand but to dominate our trading area for years to come. Removing him would do more damage to our company than any competitor could ever do.
I fully support Arthur T Demoulas and the senior management of our extraordinary company. I encourage everyone to do the same. Tell this BOD we want our company back!
Esprit de corps!
