“There is so much to be thankful about for me this year. I am blessed with a wife who has helped me become who I am today and who keeps me grounded. I am blessed with thoughtful, caring sons, daughters, their spouses and two cool grandchildren, and my Mom who is still as sharp as ever at 88. Family is what makes me. I am also blessed in my career to have had so many great people be there to support me in my vision to help people have better lives and stable communities. Truly thankful.” Mark McDaniel – President & CEO – Lansing, MI

I’m also thankful for finding my new Cinnaire family, where we all share commitment to improve other people’s lives. Feeling like I’m part of something bigger is very important to me, and allows me to take stride in being called Shelby, Wesley, Mary Ellen, and the many other names me kids give me.” Jela Ellefson – Vice President, Social Capital – Detroit, MI




“This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for Mark McDaniel’s vision. Yesterday we celebrated his induction into the AHF Hall of Fame by bringing the whole company together for a congratulatory toast. We surprised Mark, and he was very emotional, but as always, his remarks were right on with the vision and inspiration he always shared with us. Unlike any executive I have ever known, Mark is not only humble about his induction, he expresses his appreciation for us and his family and most importantly, he takes every opportunity to remind us how important it is to keep the people we serve at the forefront of our business at all times. That’s why we are so good at what we do, and that’s why I am thankful to be a part of Cinnaire!” Mary Manuel – Asset Manager – Lansing, MI


“I am thankful for our family and our health. I am thankful for the flexibility Cinnaire provides that allows me to maintain my work/life balance. I’m also thankful to be a part of an amazing group of dedicated and talented people!” Krista Wriston – Administrative Coordinator – Wilmington, DE
