The Picis Line – Q3 2019

Message from Marcus  I grew up the youngest of 3 boys in the 70’s.  I remember when I was a kid (many, many, many years ago), when the doorbell would ring, we all came running to the door.  It was a surprise when someone came calling – even if ultimately it was just a sales […]

The Picis Line – Q2 2019

Message from Marcus  A few weeks ago, I made a visit to our office in Barcelona.  While the trip there is a bit long, I absolutely love visiting our staff there.  About a third of our entire team works from our Barcelona office, the bulk of them working in our Research & Development group. Each […]

The Picis Line – Q1 2019

Message from Marcus  As you may know, I help coach a high school basketball team in my free time. I absolutely love it, as imparting life lessons to young men using basketball as the vehicle is a huge passion for me.  Coaches and teams have shaped me throughout my life.  There is such amazing power […]

The Picis Line – December 2018

Message from Marcus  Happy Holidays!!! As I write this, I am sitting in the Boston airport, waiting for my final flight of 2018!!  I have flown a great deal this year, so the prospect of this being my last flight is quite wonderful.  Many folks will be heading to and traveling through airports in the […]

The Picis Line – November 2018

Message from Marcus    As we head into “holiday season” it is always a natural time to look back on the year.  I like to reflect on the big picture more than I actually get to, so I’m grateful for the holidays – this time is a great reminder to slow down and think! 2018 […]

The Picis Line – October 2018

Message from Marcus    I spend a LOT of time on airplanes (in fact I’m writing this on a flight!).  Air travel has changed over the last several years.  With airlines charging for checked luggage, people now gather up prior to boarding to jockey for position to get on sooner.  The thinking is, if I […]

The Picis Line – September 2018

Message from Marcus    As many of you know, after my military service, I spent time in education and coaching. I have taught students in Algebra I & II, Trigonometry, Geometry, Calculus and one year, I even taught 7th and 8th grade math.

The Picis Line – August 2018

Message from Marcus    Recently, we began a quarterly session at our Wakefield Office to assist in onboarding new employees.  Our company is growing and as we add additional staff, we want to make sure we are doing a good job helping them truly understand the culture we have worked to establish at Picis over […]

The Picis Line – June 2018

Message from Marcus    I have been an avid fitness enthusiast for as long back as I can remember. Perhaps it was the military that forged in me the discipline to go “get a sweat” every day. Or perhaps I just enjoy the mental cleansing that comes with physical exertion. No matter the reason, exercise […]

The Picis Line – May 2018

Message from Marcus  I had an interesting conversation with a staff member at Picis a few days ago. He had a genuine concern about an issue and I could sense he felt quite strongly about it. As I explored the details with him, he was exceptionally reluctant to “throw anyone under the bus”. That phrase […]
