Conifer Staff Recognized at Annual Awards Ceremony

On December 2, staff and administrators from all six regional support centers gathered at The Strathallan to honor Conifer staff members for their dedication and commitment.

Awards are given based on merit and nominations. Each of our four recipients were nominated by their peers for their outstanding performance in 2016. There are three Outstanding Performance Awards and one Award of Excellence. This years’ Outstanding Performance Award winners were as follows; Laura Lander, Bookkeeper; Kristen Thompson, District Manager; and Vonnette Harris, Development Director. Their continued commitment to do what they do, better has never wavered. The three Outstanding Performance Award winners have impeccable communication and leadership skills; show professional and personal growth; and have the utmost accountability, vision and values. We honor the value that each of them bring to Conifer.

Paul Marfione, Development Project Coordinator, was awarded the 2016 Award of Excellence. His dedication and quality of work have set the bar for the gold standard. Paul was described by his peers as “an unsung work horse; quietly devoting time and energy in managing jobs.” Since joining the Conifer Development Department, Paul has successfully worked on and completed nine developments, totaling 513 apartment units. Paul encompasses all of Conifer’s values: dedication, honesty, integrity, commitment, innovation, quality and respect.

Please join us in congratulating Laura, Paul, Kristen and Vonnette!
