At our Annual After Tax Season Party, we honor many of our employees with both serious and humorous awards. The Donna A. Hubert Commitment to Excellence Award is given to a person who has demonstrated his or her commitment to excellence by performing work beyond the scope of his or her job description. Our winners are both detail-oriented and mindful of the Firm’s overall mission. This award honors Donna Hubert who worked at Legacy for 35 years. Donna was truly committed to excellence in everything she did. She contributed so much for so long and had such a great and lasting impact on the Firm. The 2018 co-recipients are: Angelica Palacios (not pictured) and Mike Scrementi.
Thomas W. Havey Team Spirit Award -- The recipient of this award has proven to be loyal to the Firm and works very well with colleagues, clients, staff, and partners. This person embodies the team spirit Mr. Havey spent many years building. This year’s award winner joins many other recipients on the prominent plaque in the front hallway of the Chicago office who fly the flag for Legacy day in and day out – with both clients and among all of us who work for the Firm. The 2018 recipient is Frank Lowry.
The Unsung Hero Award is given to a non-audit individual (e.g., administrative, clerical, and IT personnel) whose contributions "behind the scenes" are an important element of the Firm's success. Our 2018 Unsung Hero is: Nick Janich.
The Rookie of the Year Award is given to a person who has joined the Firm in the last year and a half (and has worked at Legacy more than 6 mos), has done a fantastic job for the Firm, and, in just a short time, is making a significant contribution to the Firm. Our 2018 Rookie of the Year is: Chris Berg.
Each year, the Firm hosts a summer celebration, where everyone can visit and enjoy an afternoon out of the office. The event includes a fantastic luncheon and is followed by our Annual Bean Bag Tournament. The 2018 Bean Bag Tournament winners were Liz Brown and Tim Cibulka. A great time was had by all!
