Living the Purpose Award

Living the Purpose Award

Last Monday, at Yaeger’s monthly staff meeting, Chaz Pruente was named the firm’s recipient of the 2016 Living the Purpose Award. Each of our employees was asked to nominate a fellow employee who exemplifies living the firm’s purpose through building relationships, being a proactive team leader, showing outstanding achievement on the job, and displaying creativity and innovation. Several of Chaz’ peers noted his exceptional relationships with clients and consultants and his commitment and dedication to doing whatever needs to be done to complete the most complicated of projects. Chaz is a favorite among our newest members of the firm who acknowledged that he is “viewed as a mentor,” “is approachable,” and “always available to help with fellow Yaeger employees.” Congratulations Chaz!
