The Stevie® Awards shine an international spotlight on women executives, entrepreneurs, employees and organizations run by women.
Kentwood Real Estate is proud to announce that Amy Herrington, Director of Agent and Staff Services at Kentwood Real Estate, was recently awarded a prestigious 2020 Bronze Stevie® Award in the “Female Employee of the Year Business Category,” which recognizes the achievements of non-executive female employees.
One of the world’s premier business awards, The Stevie® Awards were founded in 2002 to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working professionals worldwide.
A Kentwood veteran of 22 years, Amy Herrington’s accolade comes as no surprise to everyone who has the pleasure to work with her. Building on her career as a real estate assistant when joining Kentwood, Amy moved up the ranks to become the brokerage’s chief liaison between the company and individual brokers. Amy’s position continuously ensures brokers are educated and supported by the brokerage’s resources and programs, like updating individual marketing strategies, maintaining compliance, program implementations, and more.
Through the years, Amy’s relentless dedication to both broker and customer service has been critical to the success of Kentwood and is one reason the company has a record longevity rate for brokers that averages over 17 years at the company. A brokerage of 240 top-producing brokers, Amy has a dynamic and challenging role, yet always finds time to ensure she and Kentwood positively impact the local community to help neighbors in need.
Amy is credited with starting Kentwood’s annual “Adopt-a-Family” program. The now 21-year old program is a beloved Kentwood institution, where Amy leads partnerships with nonprofits and local government services to identify families in need of support through the holiday season. Last year alone, Kentwood donated 96 gifts, meals, and Christmas trees to single mothers and 36 families through the “Be the Gift” organization. This year Amy furthered the company’s alliance with HomeAid Colorado to assist the homeless in Colorado and helped administer food deliveries to COVID front-line workers.
“Amy’s success as a Kentwood employee is absolutely a testament to her personal character, and we are thrilled to learn that she has earned a Stevie® Award,” said Gretchen Rosenberg, President and CEO of Kentwood Real Estate. “Her significant and impactful contributions to aiding our clients, as well as those in need, guides Kentwood’s deep roots in the community and belief that “we accomplish more together.” Our clients and community know they can count on Kentwood staff, thanks in large part to Amy, for advice and support that drive tangible results for their personal businesses and beyond.”
In 2020, more than 1,500 nominations from organizations and individuals around the world were submitted for consideration in various categories, and more than 180 business professionals working in seven specialized judging committees determined the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners. The 2020 Stevie® Awards ceremony will take place virtually on December 9th at 2:00 pm MST. To learn more about Kentwood Real Estate and Amy Herrington, visit www.Kentwood.com.
