It is in the tradition of former Maine Governor and founder of Diversified Communications, Horace Hildreth that Diversified Business Communications presents annually the Governor’s Award, which stands as the company’s highest honor. This year’s honoree is Anthony Martin, Director of Diversified’s Project Management Office (PMO).
Diversified’s Senior Management Team selects an employee each year who has significant tenure with Diversified and whose service to Diversified models the persistence, vision, risk-taking and a strong work ethic of the former Governor and Founder of Diversified.
Mr. Martin joined Diversified in 2007 as a project manager and was subsequently promoted to a department head, tasked with developing a new discipline and department for Diversified.
“Anthony established the PMO for Diversified, which has been extremely effective in setting expectations and accomplishing projects ranging from technology to organizational structure,”commented Ted Wirth, President and CEO of Diversified Communications. “His impact was almost immediate and widespread.”
“Few people who join an established organization can be said to transform it. Anthony may not have transformed Diversified as a whole, but he has indeed led the transformation of how projects are accomplished,” praised Diversified’s Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Paul Clancy. He went on to compare Mr. Martin for the former late Governor. “Governor Hildreth did not invent TV, he just brought it to Maine; Anthony did not invent Project Management, he brought it to Diversified.”
Former Governor Hildreth was personally involved in building Diversified Communications for forty years following the purchase of WABI-AM, a radio station in Bangor, Maine in 1949. He brought television to the state of Maine in the form of WABI-TV, Maine’s first station which signed on 60 years ago, in 1953.
