Hunter Douglas Window Fashions chief honored

Upper Saddle River, NJ — Hunter Douglas Window Fashions' president and ceo Marv Hopkins was honored with a Courage Award from the Community Mental Health Foundation of Paramus, NJ, on June 26.

The award was for Hopkins' implementation of employee assistance services throughout North America. The Community Mental Health Foundation is a non-profit corporation dedicated to mental health issues, providing public education, program development, community relations and fundraising support to Care Plus NJ, which provides mental health services in northern New Jersey.

"Marv is known for his commitment to the needs of all his employees. He started the Hunter Douglas Employee Assistance program, which provides counseling in 26 states to Hunter Douglas employees and their families through Care Plus NJ," said Linda Hausdorff, executive director of the foundation. "He also initiated the Hunter Douglas Scholarship Program for the children of Hunter Douglas employees."

Said Hopkins, "It is an honor to have received the Courage Award on behalf of all my Hunter Douglas colleague. The effectiveness and well-being of our 6,000 employees across the United States is of vital importance to our company. The Employee Assistance Program provides confidential referrals to outside professional counseling, while our Scholarship Program, where we are donating about $100,000 each year, helps to identify young people whose futures can be advanced through college scholarships and other forms of aid."
