Diversified Communications’ Employees Honored for Cultural Influence and Commitment to Founding Vision and Shared Values

Diversified Communications announced today the recipients of their most prestigious awards:  The Chairperson’s 7 Cs Award, The Governor’s Award and Service Awards.

The Chairperson’s 7 Cs Award – selected by employees and presented to the person who best exemplifies Diversified’s values and culture as influenced by Diversified’s Chairpersons of the Board of Directors past and present – was presented to Vicki Bollinger, corporate controller. Diversified’s values (7 Cs) are caring, commitment, community, communication, cooperation/competition, customers and competence.

“Vicki has kept the value of a strong business culture at the forefront,” said Diversified’s Board Chairperson, Daniel Hildreth. “It is an honor to witness the respect for her skills and managerial approach expressed by her peers.”

The Governor’s Award, Diversified’s highest honor, was granted to two long-standing employees, Amelie Veegaert – operations manager and Lisa McCann – sr. human resources manager. The Governor’s Award is granted annually to the person whose service to Diversified embodies the persistence, vision, risk-taking and strong work ethic of Diversified’s founder and former Maine Governor, Horace Hildreth Sr.

“Amelie Veegaert and Lisa McCann have contributed to the success and culture of Diversified for thirty years combined, with impressive wins for our products and employees,” commented Ted Wirth, President and CEO of Diversified Communications. “Amelie recently managed flawless operations at our Seafood Expo Global and Seafood Processing Global events in Brussels, Belgium in light of the unprecedented terrorist incidents; and Diversified would not have the award-winning wellness program we have today without Lisa’s persistence and determination in moving it forward and continuously improving it throughout the eighteen years she has been here.”

5 Year Service Award – Leslie Rosa, Sales Manager
