Another month behind us – crazy to think how quickly 2017 is disappearing. This month was like the first day of school for us Franconians as we stepped inside our brand new office. We worked out with the United States Marines and helped welcome the Sistine Chapel Choir to Detroit. See what else we were up to in September:
In September the Franco team moved into our newly renovated office. Same great space and view inside the GMRENCEN as our old office, but completely updated with an open layout, modern furniture and the perfect design for a cohesive and productive work environment. Shout out to Dpop!

On A Boat!

Franco team members smile with PAWs during the Comerica Park Perks Season End celebration. The public was invited to Comerica Park to get behind-the-scenes access to the ballpark, meet PAWs, Detroit Tigers alum Dan Petry and Dave Rozema, get their face painted and more all while giving back to the community. Comerica Bank raised $6,000 from the event and all proceeds benefited youth groups supported through Comerica’s charitable giving program.
