In its third year, the Erica Lindenbaum Tishman Award is presented annually to a person who demonstrates exceptional leadership skills, an interest in mentorship and developing peers, a passion for resolving a particular challenge, empathy towards others, and a commitment to community service. After careful review of many nominations, we are pleased to announce Connie Jacklitsch as the recipient of this year’s Award.
Connie has had a tremendous impact on every aspect of our firm and has been nominated every year since the awards program was established. In her over 17 years at Zubatkin, she has led our Administrative Team and partnered with our Management Team to deliver the highest level of excellence for our clients. She mentors and develops the support functions of Zubatkin as a key backbone of our business – making sure that nothing skips a beat across all of the varying demands and details that come up in our day to day operations.
Connie is also instrumental to promoting our family culture and values. Her compassionate leadership is recognized by all those who have worked with her. She wears many hats – “advisor, counselor, coach, listener, or implementer of change” – depending on the situation at hand. We are extremely fortunate to have her on our team.
As this year’s recipient, Connie has selected the Educational Alliance and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to receive a donation in her honor as part of the Award. Please join us in congratulating Connie!
