Team Members on N6A’s People-First Approach and Our Core Mission


This past week, the N6A team sat down to kick off the new year and talk about all we have planned for the year ahead and all we accomplished in 2019. Last year was a big year of Outcomes for our clients – IPOs, mergers, large capital raises and thousands of pieces of coverage later, it is important to pause and recognize the people behind those successes. As we hit our tenth year as a company, we remain a people-first organization. We believe in treating our team members as if they are family. 

There are a few awards and recognitions that are important traditions in honoring the people that make N6A the unique place that it is. The recipients of these two awards are the N6A team members that embody our core taglines like “Embrace the Pace” and “Compete and Care.” 

The “N6A Chairman’s Pick” is a quarterly program to determine which N6A team member has most effectively demonstrated the values and work ethic that are aligned with N6A’s culture and foundation. The “N6A Bucket List” is the second of N6A’s two signature annual vacation competition programs, and was designed to reward the highest-producing N6A team member for the second half of the year (July through December), according to our internal ranking system.
