“SRM understands the business models used by vendors,” Schmidt noted. “And they are not adversarial toward vendors. They represent their client & maintain their independence by not having any economic relationships with vendors. This was all very important to me – all of it – as I needed for all parties to maintain a quality of interaction that would facilitate our working successfully with the vendor for the next few years.” As for an encore performance featuring SRM & 1st Bank of Sea Isle City? Schmidt concludes, “We will be using SRM again when the need arises. It is perhaps cliché to talk about the importance of the character and values of a partner, or even to use the word “partner” itself. But I can show you a firm where these things are not treated as such.”
