Pat and Tony DeAngelis wanted to establish something in honor of their nephew, our President, Ed DeAngelis. They felt that the transformative work that he had accomplished so far in his career deserved some type of recognition in his honor. As leaders, Tony and Pat understand the powerful difference purposeful leadership can make in a person’s life. Their intent is to cultivate in others the outstanding leadership that Ed has and continues to exhibit. The award is meant to inspire all leaders to passionately commit to transforming lives for the better. The Edward DeAngelis Leadership Award is presented annually and gives special recognition to an EDA employee who exemplifies the highest standards of excellence in leadership, customer service, teamwork, compassion, and generosity. Any EDA employee can nominate a fellow who they feel exemplifies this standard of excellence.
Through careful consideration by the EDA Leadership Team, a winner was chosen as the recipient of the Edward DeAngelis Leadership Award. Chris Hallahan, one of our Carpentry Foremen, received the award!
