"The Customer is Always Right," "You need to be able to manage cash flow", and "Your employees are your greatest assets" were three examples of business insights longtime member, Bob Cutrona of Project One, shared during a recent Bucks meeting.

Beginning with describing his childhood as an embarrassment of riches, not in personal financial wealth, but wealth of happiness and support from his family, Bob described his upbringing, his degree in accounting and the subsequent positions that resulted from that degree from being the Vice President of Planning for Gulf and Western Industries to the Vice President of Finance for Ralph Lauren. After realizing that corporate America was not where he wanted to continue professionally, Bob become part of the franchise cleaning conglomerate, Maintenance King. From there he opened his own service company which started as a cleaning company and expanded to lawn maintenance, landscape design and installation, and eventually snowplowing services. Bob was also a principal in an adjacent business, Priority One, a court reporting service which was eventually bought by the largest court reporting services company on the East Coast.
