Oh how I loved this story. There are at least three stars here: 1) Mr. Lukis, who had the smarts to start a project/product and then the smarts to know when he needed a different skill set for the next phase of development. 2) Obviously, Brad Cleveland who also had the smarts to take it through that next stage and then the smarts (and no ego)to move on when appropriate, finding the next logical skill-set. 3) Brad's Father, Dave Cleveland, who was one of the best community bankers this town will ever see, and had the smarts to instill in his son Brad the qualities of hard work, common sense and frankly, altruism (all while making a few bucks as well!). Well done by all of you. American entrepreneurship at its finest.
