SADDLE BROOK, N.J.—Nourison celebrated the holiday season earlier this month with a gala banquet that included dining and dancing, as well as service awards to acknowledge the 10-year and 20-year tenure of employees. Held at Landmark in East Rutherford, N.J. on Dec. 8, 2013, the event was attended by more than 150 Nourison employees, including office staff, warehouse employees and company sales reps from all over the country.
Sixty-one Nourison employees were honored for their service of 10 years of more while 11 employees were singled out for their 20 years or more of service to the company. Special awards were presented to the new 10-year and 20-year candidates. They included Gerard O’Keefe (senior vice president, sales), Linda Jacobs (senior rug designer), Eve Pinto (customer service representative), Paul Harrington (sales executive), Moises Nunez (warehouse worker), Donna Orlando (logistics manager) for 10 years of service; and Carlos Monroy (senior supervisor, Calhoun division) and Katherine Carr (office manager, warehouse division) for 20 years of service.
“We are very proud of the fact that so many of our staff have long tenures with us,” said Alex Peykar, principal at Nourison. “We appreciate loyalty and I think it says something when our employees want to stay and grow with us.”
