It’s not every day that a client’s CEO retires. CommunityAmerica Credit Union wanted to send off their longtime leader, Dennis Pierce, with something special. Bailey Lauerman was up to the challenge. Throughout his distinguished career, Dennis had provided advice, wisdom, and guidance to many of his coworkers and friends — and his retirement was time to compile all of it into one collection.
Collecting stories from his friends and colleagues, Bailey Lauerman set about creating a book to compile the words of wisdom from Dennis. The humorous and humbling stories were perfectly complemented with whimsical illustrations. Together, the anecdotes and artwork created a one-of-a-kind tome to honor Dennis.
The client was so pleased with the result, they ordered fifty copies of the book to present to Dennis and the leadership of CommunityAmerica Credit Union. Dennis himself was touched by the gift, and the organization as a whole can continue to benefit from his collected wisdom.
