'Building a values-based company'
Bob Hatcher shares importance of values in interview with 'Triple Crown Leadership'

MACON, Ga. (10-24-12) MidCountry Financial Corp. CEO and President Bob Hatcher has been part of the financial services and banking industry for half a century. While much has changed during that time, the one constant has been Hatcher’s commitment to the importance values play in building a successful organization.

In an interview with "Triple Crown Leadership," a website centered around a book of the same name written by Bob and Gregg Vanourek, Hatcher outlines the roles values and strong leadership have at MidCountry.

"Our culture is open, inclusive, dynamic, and values-based. It derives from our leadership team and our values-based communications in everything we do," said Hatcher. "Every time we make decisions, particularly if it’s a tough decision, the question is, 'How does this fit in [with] the values?'"
