‘Tis the season for shopping mall mayhem, late night gift wrapping, and holiday parties galore. If you’re like most of us, keeping the real spirit of the season top of mind amid this chaos can be tough.
At Exchange Solutions, we use this season to celebrate in many ways, from charitable competitions to departmental Secret Santas, but most importantly we take this time to reflect upon the year and think about the people who make it so special. Each year we recognize an outstanding employee through a peer nominated award – fondly known as the Frank Clemente Heart Award.
Frank was Exchange Solutions’ Finance Manager who passed away in 2005. To honor Frank, the Heart Award was created to carry on his amazing legacy. Day-in and day-out he was someone who you could count on, he treated everyone with respect, and was always ready to help with a smile in everything he did.
In honor of Frank, the award pays tribute to an employee who stands as a role model, shows dedication, commitment, exudes positive energy, and personifies our Core Values.
The Core Values at Exchange Solutions define us as different. What we foster through our Core Values in every interaction with each other and our clients is keeping engagement high, providing value through innovation and collaboration, all while delivering the very best. Read more about how the Core Values make us different in our blog post.
This year we proudly recognize two recipients of the Heart Award. Congratulations to Jason Kendlbacher, Senior Director of Finance and to Farid Sarwari, Infrastructure Architect for being true to the Heart Award, and reminding us of the passion and commitment we should strive for.
Here’s to opening our hearts a bit wider this season and kicking off the New Year with a fresh, positive, perspective.
