Jim Vedda Award Winners 2017

On February 23rd, 2017, StratEx’s annual Jim Vedda Award was awarded to not one, but two deserving individuals: Alyssa Garza and Andrea Ljevar.

These StratExians exhibit the traits we value most at StratEx — they are smart, hard-working, and dedicated to not only our clients’ success, but to making StratEx the best organization it can be for their fellow StratExians.

In short, Alyssa and Andrea embody our company values:

Integrity:  Do the right thing, the right way, at the right time.
Respect:  StratEx is a family. We respect each other. We work and succeed together.
Innovation:  Continue to develop and apply better solutions to meet new business needs for our clients and our teams.

Congratulations to them both — well deserved!!

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community, and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.

I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no “brief candle” for me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”

George Bernard Shaw
