Our two finalists this year are Angela Savage and Frank Chavez. In their award letters from Mike Mitchell, CMA President they received the following individual praise:
Angie Savage: “In addition to the consistent and reliable work that you have performed for CMA’s Nevada Division, you deserve special praise for your passionate support of Nevada members and staff. Your colleagues praised you for your exceptional ability to plan, coordinate, and execute group meetings and member events, and for demonstrating an uncanny talent for connecting with members to deliver a wonderful member experience. Your “can do” attitude and unyielding support of the office staff and membership exemplifies the highest form of team spirit for which we all strive.”
Frank Chavez: “In addition to the consistent and reliable work that you have performed for the Asset Liquidation Division, you deserve special praise for your leadership in the field. Your colleagues praised you for your expert management of auction set-up process, which enables the rest of the auction team to conduct fast, efficient, effective, and productive auctions that enhance CMA’s reputation. Your department takes great pride in recognizing you as an unsung hero, rarely seen by most CMA staff members, but whose efforts have been keenly noticed and greatly appreciated for many years.”
The 2009 CMA Employee of the Year is Paul Guillen.
Paul received the following recognition from Mike in his award letter, “In addition to the consistent and reliable work that you have performed for the Collection Division, you deserve special praise for your exceptional team support and expert resourcefulness. Your colleagues expressed heartfelt gratitude for your valuable assistance in orienting two new Collection staff members this year, which was a critical part of a successful transition that significantly strengthened the department. Many other staff members outside the Collection Division have remarked about your unique brand of “willing and able to help” that crosses department and geographic boundaries. During your relatively short tenure at CMA, you have proven yourself to be a valuable asset to the Association as a whole, and we wanted you to know that you are regarded highly by staff and management.”
Congratulations to Paul and all the nominees this year, and a special note of thanks to those who took the time to nominate their peers.
