TSP Then & Now: Drew Rothschild

A Look Back Through the Years

How long have you been at tsp?

I’m coming up on ten years. It was nine years last June.

How is TSP the same now as it was then?

It’s the simple things that have not changed: taking the high road, treating people right, having real conversations, and just taking the time to understand people and their families, not just squeezing them into a J-O-B. We win because of the power of people and the power of personal.

What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned at TSP?

You will fall and it will be tough, but you’ll get back up. And then fall again. Things you’re not expecting will happen to you in life. Things will happen to the people you work with, candidates and clients. But it will train you for what happens in your personal life.

TSP gave me a roof, friends, and a family—but the best thing it has given me is my ability to communicate with people in my life and to handle adversity.

What’s your favorite TSP memory?

We came back from a meeting with a potential client, and I was a little overwhelmed. The opportunity was so big that I was hesitant. We’d never done anything like this before.

I was in our conference room, Camp Wagner, talking about the project with Chad and Todd. Then Dog, the CEO, joined us at the table and shared what he’s learned over the years. He and TSP have a way of empowering people with ideas and challenging the current way of doing things.  

We were embarking on something that would require collaboration across all teams at TSP. We were on the verge of something-- something awesome. It was a feeling I’d never experienced before.

I’m having more fun now than I’ve ever had because of moments like this.
