“IREM has played such an important role in my career, and has always helped me learn, grow and improve as a professional,” said DiGiacomo. “It’s such an honor to be a finalist for this award, and I look forward to continuing to work towards growing our local chapter and promoting IREM’s teachings.”
United University, United Group’s in-house training and development program was named a finalist for this year’s “Innovator Award.” This award recognizes innovative programs related to technology, customer service, sustainability, or marketing that are transformational for the company as a whole, a team, or a program.
