First Financial Security, Inc., (FFS), served as the platinum sponsor for the week-long 32nd Annual 2015 Hmong International New Year (HINY) in Fresno, CA. FFS executives and employees joined local dignitaries and Hmong leaders from around the world for this celebration of culture and tradition. “Participation at this level is a way to give back to a community that has contributed to the growth and character of our company,” said CEO Phil Gerlicher. This years’ events attracted 100,000 Hmong from across the country and around the globe.
As a platinum sponsor FFS was featured as a part of opening ceremonies to commemorate the legacy of New Year festivities. CEO Phil Gerlicher briefly addressed a crowd of about 40,000 on December 26, 2014 to thank the Hmong community for their contribution to our company and to American society. “We are a nation of immigrants,” Phil began, “Our nation is better because you are here and because of those who came before you. And FFS is a better company because of our partnership.” At the closing ceremony President Meg Jones publicly recognized the Hmong communities’ contribution to record sales growth. Values deeply rooted within the Hmong community align well with the Core Values of First Financial Security, Inc. A strong work ethic, loyalty, endurance, and integrity are shared values and make the FFS and Hmong partnership so natural.
The annual celebration includes cultural dancing and singing performances and the traditional ball-tossing courtship game, “Pov Pob.” FFS distributed over 10,000 tennis balls in support of that tradition.
