The St. Louis Apartment Association had its annual “Rising Stars” awards on Friday, April 25th. The Banner teams in St. Louis was well represented with nominees in nearly every category. In many cases there were multiple Banner employees competing against one another in a category. Obviously, everyone couldn’t win an award but in the words of their Regional Manager (Scott Boone); “Everyone is a winner in my book as they are all deserving. I’m so lucky to have so many great people”.
All nominees were nominated by their fellow employees and winners were determined based on a face to face interview with the judges. Banner had a big night as we had 5 individual winners. They were:
Joe Piacentini – The Enclave at Winghaven : Rising Star of the Year
Mary Jolley – The Enclave at Winghaven : Leasing Specialist of the Year
Devon Cummings – Whisper Hollow – Maintenance Tech of the Year
Rob Mooney – The Enclave at Winghaven : Maintenance Supervisor of the Year
Steve Matre – Executive Employee of the Year.
Banner also took home the biggest prize of the night as well. As proof that “everyone is a winner” and validating how many great people we have on our team; Banner was named Management Company of the Year! We solidified our spot as a leader in our industry as this was the 3rd time in the last 5 years (’10,’12, ’14) that we have been honored with this award. Congratulations to all; again in 2014, we can say “You are the best!”
