Walter Quinones (IT)
Lorena Jeffrey (EB), Steve Carter (Member/Elf), and Carmen Ramirez (EB)
At the All Employee Meeting in February, the Donna Palmer-Crowley Employee of the Year Award was presented to Walter Quinones (IT) who we wish all the best during his upcoming year abroad with the Navy.
The Ventura branch celebrated the holidays with a party held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. CEO Greg Van Ness acted as Master of Ceremonies, and kicked things off with our 58th annual year-end bonus checks. The team enjoyed a delicious lunch and was entertained by the amazing teen magician Austin Janek. Member Ray Clem gave a heartfelt speech invoking the close-knit family that is our Tolman & Wiker Team.
The 4th Quarter Excellence Award was presented to Debbie Irwin (CL) for her responsiveness and dedication to completing requests in a timely manner even when it requires her to work through lunch. Congrats, Debbie!
