Last Thursday at The Carlu in Toronto, we officially celebrated our 20th Anniversary, acknowledging our amazing employees, partners and clients. The 300 guests in attendance enjoyed an evening of live jazz, prize draws, and great company.

Starting out in 1994, with just three employees, our team has grown to 44 strong and we’ve helped many clients make meaningful connections to their customers/donors.

“When we started Bassett, it really was centred upon a very, very simple philosophy: ‘Let’s get the very best people in this business working together, let’s work with the very best customers and do the very best job possible every single day.’  Well, I’m very pleased that the culture that we created 20 years ago, is still here today.”
– Rich Bassett, President

What has been the secret to our success over the past 20 years? Simply put, it’s our attention to detail and dedication to our clients.

“At Bassett we care about three things: quality, delivering on-time and providing services that are a good value for our customers. As a result, we often have repeat jobs and daily programs running. I don’t feel that I work for Bassett but that I work with Bassett – it is truly a team environment where every department is involved in the process from start to finish.”
– Magdi Gronfuly, Senior Developer/Programmer (With Bassett Direct for 14 years)

In additional to our long term clients, half of our employees have been with the company for over 10 years, possessing a great depth of knowledge.

“I love working here because of all the people surrounding me. I love doing my job because there is a challenge every day fulfilling rewards packages.”
– Jennifer David, Lettershop (With Bassett Direct for 13 years)

Most importantly, it’s our family culture that binds us together and makes for a great work environment.

“Bassett is a company that promotes from within.  It’s also a very friendly environment and most of all we are like a family. That’s why I like to work here at Bassett.”
– Sandra Develos, Laser Operator (with Bassett Direct for 7 years)

A big thanks to everyone who attended and has worked with us in the last 20 years. Here’s to 20 more years of going above and beyond!
