Mary Beth Norwood, Co-Office Managing Partner of CohnReznick
"As a lover of all sports, I am a firm believer in teamwork. The Baltimore Ravens are the quintessential of all teams. Looking at Ray Lewis and seeing the leadership and passion that he brings to the game, it really inspires me to bring those same qualities to CohnReznick. As Co-Office Managing Partner, I made the decision after the Colts win to allow the entire office to wear their purple, jeans and sneakers all week leading up to the Broncos game. After we won, my superstitious nature got the best of me and I told everyone to wear their purple again. After the Patriots win, I knew we couldn't stop. So, we will be wearing purple until the Super Bowl. Many clients and employees from other offices in our building have commented on how cool it is that CohnReznick is letting their employees show their support for the Ravens. We are approaching tax season and we are usually working around the clock. Cheering for the Ravens and dressing in our purple, jeans and sneakers has really allowed our staff to break the monotony and stress typical for this time of year. My husband and I are heading to New Orleans and I am hoping my new fondest Ravens memory will be bringing home the Super Bowl win."
