Every January the partners at ANF Architects host an Employee "New Year's Good Luck" Luncheon on the first day after our holiday break.
This tradition is one that offers us a chance to reflect on our accomplishments of the previous year while generating excitement and focusing our goals for the year ahead.
Outstanding employee performance from the previous year is acknowledged with bespoke award certificates. Six awards were given at this year's luncheon for 2014 work accomplishments.
Eli Cloud received the ANF Award for her cheerful and inquiring disposition; zealous action-oriented focus; organized, almost nonstop engine; and a sociable love of festivities.Brian
Martinelli received the Leslie Smith Award (an award that pays homage to
the late Leslie Smith
who was a wonderful person
and was a terrific Associate at
ANF Architects for
over 30 years) for
reliable character and practical problem-solving for ANF. Just like Leslie
Smith, Brian doesn't mess around; he gets the job done. You can find Brian
working away, cussing at times, but always completing his projects in a
timely manner while working well with clients and co-workers. Not
only is Brian a great Revit resource, but he finds time to mentor others,
and devotedly harass Rosemary. Amanda Whitaker received a letter of recognition for her continuing hard work for ANF. Amanda has
