Getting to know Man-Hyung

What do you enjoy most about working at RTD?

Our clients and my colleagues. I love and feel empowered by the fact that I can make a direct and tangible impact on the lives of our clients. As a steward of our clients, it is a responsibility and duty that I do not take lightly. The work that we do for clients is really rewarding and it helps all the more that our clients truly appreciate it. The people and culture at our firm are second to none. It is a very family-oriented culture where we are all rooting for each other’s success, and we are relentlessly focused on one mission: bettering the lives of our clients.

What makes you good at what you do?

I am a good listener with great attention to detail and a tireless work ethic. I can pick up on things that most people may overlook or dismiss as immaterial, but I have the ability to also understand the big picture. I am also a life-long learner and am constantly trying to find ways to grow, develop skills and knowledge and become the best version of myself.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?

The one that resonates most with me is from Philly’s own, the Great Rocky Balboa. He once said, “It ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done!”

What are your passions outside of work?

I enjoy reading up on and researching consumer electronics and technology that make your life easier (or more convenient). I am a pretty die-hard Eagles fan and have rooted for (and critiqued) them for most of my life.
