Office Mascot

Since 1997, Bongo has worked as our "President of Office Morale," entertaining clients with his perky smile and overseeing all office activities from his perch in a live tree in the boss's office.

He has learned a lot over the years sharing an office with the boss. He is very proud of his fruit and vegetable "retirement" and "emergency" funds that he keeps at the base of his tree.
