Three Questions with…Christian Fasso!
In November, Hixson Billing Manager/Staff Accountant Christian Fasso celebrated his 22nd year with our firm! In honor of the occasion, we asked him to answer three questions for us:
- Why have you chosen to stay at Hixson for so long? Hixson is one company that talks-the-talk and walks-the-walk and has proven itself to me over the past 22 years. Their commitment to continuous employment really sticks out to me because I have been here during times in which other firms would have let people go. Instead, Hixson’s board took a temporary pay cut just to keep all its employees on staff. Another time when we had no bonuses for a couple of years, Hixson gave everyone a 10% pay increase just to not lose its valuable staff. These are important, yet impressive, events that have shown me what Hixson is really made of…character.
- What’s one thing that surprised you about working at Hixson? I think one of the things that’s surprised me is how helpful and friendly everyone at Hixson has been over the years. At other jobs at which I have worked, there was usually so much turmoil, chaos, and stress involved, it made you hate going to work. Hixson is one place that I have worked where it doesn’t feel like having a job, but more like a place I go to help a cause with like-minded people…people who are like family.
- Best vacation you’ve been to and why? My best vacation is any time my wife and I are at Disney! We go often with kids or grandkids in tow and it is a lot of fun to see them in awe the entire trip. However, it is also really special for Mindy and I to go alone. We feel that it is truly a magical place to forget about the day-to-day and just be a kid again and again. It is a very special place for us that continues to give us many memories of our precious time together.
