Dear PGM Capital Blog readers,

Today, May 9th, 2014, it is exactly 25 years ago that we have incorporated PGM Academy, as the first company of the PGM Group of companies.

On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of our company, we look back with great gratitude for the support and trust we have enjoyed these past 25 years from our clients and principals, who became friends in the process of sharing their needs and mutual dreams with us.

It started in a humble small study-room, in which we dared to execute the ‘walk-the-talk’ vision of learning and dedicated practice.

We feel blessed with your trust and positive criticism which helped sharpen our insight and deepened our understanding of the multi-faceted aspects that determine our mutual​ success​.

We dedicate the following poem to all of you as our way of saying ‘thank you’!

On this day, May 9th 1989, exactly 25 years ago,
we sowed the seeds for the present
and in the present those for the future.

Our tools are knowledge, ethics and perseverance
with an ahead-of-the-curve understanding
of the dynamics of human development.

We learn with the purpose of discovering that,
as we sweat and toil and get bogged down
in frustration of ill-conceived targets, we must persist
until we still see the light shimmering in the distance,
beckoning us to follow our impossible dreams.

Thus we stand here today – greyer and smarter –
Looking back in wonder,
grateful for the many challenges,
the many friends and clients, and the lessons
learned from a life well lived.

We want to express our heart-felt thanks to all of you on behalf of the staff and personnel of PGM Group and we look forward to continuing this special relationship with you to our mutual advantage.

Last but not least, we want to thank the almighty God for illuminating our way and providing us with the wisdom and guidance for these past 25 years.

Yours sincerely,

  • Eric, nogmaals gefeliciteerd met 25 jaar succesvol ondernemen middels de Academy. Dat wij nog lang mogen genieten van je kennis die je zo onbaatzuchtig deelt met anderen. By the way, ik wist niet van je kwaliteit als dichter. Weer iets bijgeleerd. Haha. Groetjes, Elfriede

  • Awesome!
    Congratulations on this great achievement and milestone.
    I feel priviledged to belong to your group of clients & friends.
    Thank you for everything and keep up the good work!
