Hollander commends Weikel with Leo Award
December 18, 2007,
Boca Raton, Fla. – Basic bedding manufacturer Hollander Home Fashions has bestowed its second annual Leo Award upon Ruthanne Weikel, plant supervisor in Frackville, Pa.
Hope Gresham, a 32-year veteran pillow closer at Hollander’s Tignall, Ga. plant, is being recognized with the runner-up Leo Award.
Hollander created the award to honor the late Hollander founder, Leo Hollander. The award publicly credits Hollander associates who exemplify the traits, values and beliefs Hollander possessed: integrity, passion, vision, courage, honor, compassion, and commitment.
Weikel said, “It means so much to me to be awarded the Leo Award. Leo was a true role model, and it’s an honor to be recognized in this capacity.”
