As a people-focused organization, The Jacobson Group is dedicated to our employees and their professional development. On Employee Appreciation Day 2020, we’re highlighting two of our staff members in particular. First is Caitlyn Manuel, corporate recruiting manager. Caitlyn won last quarter’s Bravo award, which recognizes individuals who have exemplified outstanding performance, service, and commitment to our core values and goals. Second is Matthew Moore, client development manager, who is new to Jacobson but has already made an impact. You can view previous editions of our Employee Spotlight here.
