What a year.

2020 has been, among many other things, a wild ride. In fact, it’s hard to believe that it’s only been one year since we last celebrated Thanksgiving. 

In a year that’s been challenging at many turns, we’re excited about the opportunity to celebrate this Thanksgiving holiday. It’s a chance to step back and look at some of the good from the last twelve months. And, at gateB, we’re brimming with gratitude.

As we reflect on our year, there are three standout things for which we’re thankful. So we’d like to give a shoutout to:

Our clients

We know it might sound cheesy (at best) or like a marketing ploy (at worst), but we really mean it. We have some truly amazing clients.

This year, we’ve had the opportunity to come alongside brands that have challenged and inspired us. We’ve been able to see teams striving to help each other and their customers thrive. 

Our work gets us an inside look at how companies and teams are functioning, and we’re impressed. This year, companies have been presented with challenge after challenge. They’ve risen to them, working to reach their customer even as physical locations shutter. We’ve also seen companies go above and beyond to protect their team, helping people weather this storm. 

If you’re one of our clients, we want to thank you. Thank you for trusting us to come alongside you on your digital transformation journey. We’re grateful for the opportunity to be there.

Our partners

During 2020, we’ve added some new partners to our roster. At the same time, we’ve deepened relationships with some solution providers who’ve been with us for years. 

The result? We’re incredibly proud of each partnership we have. 

We really believe that each of our partners offers not just a best-in-breed solution, but also the right customer-focused mentality. They work tirelessly with us to meet ultra-specific needs, all while prioritizing our clients’ wants. 

To each of our partners, we extend a massive thank you. It’s truly a joy to work with you to turn our clients’ ideal solutions into reality.

Our team

Our team — like so many others — has really been put through the wringer this year. When we shifted to work-from-home situations, every single member of our staff stepped up. Everyone was flexible and accommodating. 

Many business owners fear that moving to remote work will mean losing that team connection, but if anything, we’ve seen the opposite. Our Slack channel is populated with jokes and shoutouts. Ultimately, our team has continued to support each other and our clients to the best of their ability. We’re really proud of the work we’ve done together in 2020. 

To our growing team in LA, you are all rock stars. Thank you for the work you do — and the focus and enthusiasm with which you do it.

Yes, 2020’s been a hard year. But it’s had some large-scale silver linings. So here’s to those — and to the great year ahead.
