In the tradition of i-SIGMA, every year the association’s Executive Committee singles out individuals with the presentation of the Service Provider Member and Corporate Member of the Year Awards.
Tom Schreyer, CSDS, is an information privacy advisor and leads Affordable Shred and Storage (Buffalo, IL) as a preferred company in both document, electronic and product destruction and compliance. He assists business professionals in formulating their information security policies, updating management teams and training customer’s employees. Tom is a Certified HIPAA Professional, a Certified Secure Destruction Specialist (CSDS) and serves as chairperson on the Communications & Marketing Committee for i-SIGMA. His contributions to the association are many, and his history in the industry is storied. His unwavering commitment to providing quality shredding and storage services to customers certainly makes him worthy of the title of Service Provider Member of the Year.
Jennie Gift, CSDS, of CSR Privacy Solutions (Denver, CO) is the former vice president of both Shred Nations/Record Nations and Paxton Records. At CSR Privacy Solutions she bears responsibility for sales and service in North America, Europe, & Australia. As a 20-year veteran of the records management industry, Jennie brings extensive knowledge and experience to any team, and her commitment to growing channel partner sales and providing a quality software experience to customers is astounding. She is a fantastic selection for the Corporate Member of the Year Award.
As a member of i-SIGMA, Shred Nations and Record Nations recognizes the benefits of continuing higher education for those individuals interested in business, environmental responsibility and making future contributions to the community. Both companies believe in giving back to those providers by offering a scholarship to students seeking higher education, so they offer a scholarship in the form of an annual award of up to $7,500 to offset the costs of higher education.
This year’s recipient, Hana Connelly, grew up around the industry. Her parents, Dawn and Brian Connelly of All Points Mobile Shredding, are longtime industry veterans who both have a lengthy and lauded history with i-SIGMA. Hana is an excellent student and intelligent young woman who certainly deserves this honor and exemplifies everything that the Shred Nations and Record Nations Scholarship seeks to cultivate and reward. i-SIGMA wishes her the best with her future endeavors and continues to support the professional development of young adults for the continued future of our industry.
i-SIGMA would like to congratulate all the award winners. We cannot wait to see what they do this year!
