“Embracing Innovation- Taking Charge of the Future” was the headline at the recent Maine Development Foundation’s (MDF) Annual Meeting, where Cianbro was publicly honored for the company's instrumental role in workforce development. The Maine Employer’s Initiative, launched in 2007, was established as a direct challenge to employers’ commitment to taking “just one more step” beyond what they are currently doing to support their employee’s educational goals. In recognition of these commitments, Mike Bennett, Director of the Cianbro Institute, accepted the very first “Champion of Employee Education” award on behalf of Cianbro.
“We are so pleased to present this inaugural award to Cianbro for their unwavering commitment to their employees and their educational needs,” stated Laurie Lachance, President & CEO of MDF. “By creating the Cianbro Institute and collaborating with the Community Colleges, Adult Education programs and a network of workforce development agencies, they have become leaders in educating their employees as well as community members.”
Aldo Servello, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, was also recognized and elected to the MDF Board of Director’s during this reception. Congratulations to Aldo, and to the Cianbro Institute for their dedication and innovation.
