Our Company Culture

RENEW was built on a solid ethical foundation. We believe in straight talk and accountability with our customers, employees, and shareholders. Our business philosophy can be described in the words of Jim Owen, author of What Wall Street Can Learn from the Code of the West:

  • Live Each Day with Courage
  • Take Pride in Your Work
  • Always Finish What You Start
  • Do What Has To Be Done
  • Be Tough, Be Fair
  • When You Make A Promise, Keep It
  • Ride for the Brand
  • Talk Less and Say More
  • Remember that Some Things are not for Sale
  • Know Where to Draw the Line

The Code of the West will be adopted so that all of our employees understand our business philosophy. Inspired by the working cowboy’s core principles of honesty, loyalty and courage, we aim to bring the simple, timeless values embodied in the Code of the West to Renew.
