In late January, the Global Edge Consultants came together to celebrate the 2021 year during the annual Global Edge Awards. Held every January, the Global Edge Awards is an opportunity for the team to recognize and commemorate the great work that went into the previous year and gear up for the year to come.
Throughout the evening, CEO Kathy Eberwein also recognized employees who reached monumental achievements in the past year. Angie Perez, Payroll Administrator, and Darren Smith, Business Director, were recognized for celebrating their 10-year anniversaries with the Global Edge. Additionally, Eberwein recognized Darren Smith, Jason Hitchen, and Kara Keenan for their incredible leadership in 2021 and their advancement into the Business Director position in early January.
The Global Edge recognized ten individuals for their hard work and dedication in 2021. Based on nominations from their colleagues and Key Performance Indicators, the 12 awards given showcase only a fraction of the commitment to excellence from the entire Global Edge team.
