Madison Trust Company and Broad Financial's Spirit Week 2023

As an end of the summer celebration, Madison Trust Company and our sister company, Broad Financial, participated in our Third Annual Spirit Week! Employees were encouraged to come to work dressed according to different themes, engage in team-building activities, and participate in a philanthropic fundraiser. The office was bursting with laughter, creativity, and comradery among team members. This week truly personified our culture of caring, collaboration, improving, and empowering.

One of our Self-Directed IRA Specialists, Emily, described what this week means to her, “I love how Spirit Week brings the whole company together. Over the last three years, everyone has gotten more involved and displays good team spirit. These types of activities truly bond our company.”  

Let’s see how the week went!
