I’m proud we’ve been able to preserve and build on the CAP’s strong track record of success while preparing and leading the organization to successfully navigate dramatic changes in the industry.”
Under Mix’s leadership, the CAP has been honored as a Chicago Tribune Top Workplace and a Companies That Care’s socially responsible workplace.
