What's in a name?

No, we're not the Office of Financial Management folks, nor the Office of Financial Missons. But why "OFM"? As the company was being formed, Richard Sack—a longtime dog-lover—successfully argued that it be named after his beloved dogs. The initials represent his three dogs at the time: Oldie, Fido, and Morgan.
