It is unfortunate but inevitable that recent national news stories about me and Fisher Investments cause some concern in our community.
I made some inappropriate remarks at a conference that do not reflect any values I have or have ever had. I apologized for those. I apologize to you for those. They will not reoccur again ever in any form. Since then media has rippled from that. People will naturally wonder about the impact of my clumsy and inappropriate remarks as these stories swirl – and worry not only about the impact on Fisher Investments and its employees but also on our family, friends and neighbors in Camas.
As our town’s largest private sector employer, I want to assure you: none of this will have any measurable impact on any of you.
The firm, overall, is strong, vibrant and continuing to grow despite these stories.
As our CEO Damian Ornani wrote to Fisher Investments employees today, there will be no layoffs. Our headcount will continue to increase. Our construction on Northwest 38th Avenue will carry on uninterrupted. Our relationships with all local vendors remain exactly as before.
