Individual Stewardship

We each take ownership of the process of building a better, stronger and more durable company. We take pride in the DJM brand and see it as as a compass: reflecting our philosophy, guiding our actions, embodying our values and setting standards we can believe in and rally around. We are building something together, but making meaningful contributions as individuals every day.

Integrity & Accountability

We are ethically unyielding, as a company and as individuals. Honesty is key – saying what we mean, inspiring trust in others, and taking responsibility for our actions at all times. With absolute transparency others can count on, we foster open communication with investors, partners, vendors, and each other.

Teamwork & Collaboration

We are only as strong as our teams, and collectively we recognize the importance of working together to achieve success. Communication is vital, and all opinions are welcome. We believe that consensus is often reached through dialogue, debate, and differing opinions. Org Charts are less revered than working shoulder to shoulder with others whose disciplines may be different, but whose goals are clearly aligned. We take responsibility for our misses, but more often enjoy being together to celebrate our successes.

People Above Projects

We strive to attract, develop and retain the best talent for our business, and work to create a supportive environment in which they will thrive. We recognize the diverse qualities of individuals. We encourage personal development. While we value and reward hard work, we also encourage personal balance, and respect family commitments, community service, and personal time and pursuits that ultimately make our people more interesting, responsible and fulfilled individuals - qualities they bring to DJM as valuable members of our team.

Optimism & Possibility

We face challenges with a sense of excitement. We value a "can do" attitude, and know that creativity is critical and anything less is unacceptable. We understand that a bigger "vision" transcends the immediate task at hand, and striving to keep that vision top-of-mind and make it a reality is what gets us up in the morning.

Quality & Excellence

Not an option, an absolute requirement. We recognize the need for compromise, financial prudence, practical decision-making, and mitigated risk; however, we never achieve these at the expense of delivering a quality product or an excellent outcome. Creating and perpetuating an atmosphere of excellence is paramount, affecting the most significant decisions we make and the smallest details we attend to. It affects our individual decision-making as well as our collective choices. Not merely a company mandate, we see quality as a vital and viable business strategy. Achieving it is at the core of our value system and culture.
