Foreground Center CEO Jim Gosnell and President Jim Osborne addressed more than 250 employees during the event, some of whom had flown in from offices in New York, Nashville, Toronto, Atlanta and London. Osborne took a minute to greet veteran agents who have been with the agency for more than 25 years, including Gosnell. He then addressed the crowd by calling out the 12 senior agents whom ICM Partners APA welcomed to the group, while also praising the next generation of young agents by dedicating the party to them. Gosnell reported that the theme of the bash was “60 Years Young,” which caused a roar from the workforce.
