Our annual Employee Stock Ownership celebrations honor our employees and give us the opportunity to express our deepest thanks. We’re so pleased to recognize the following Value Award winners from Des Moines for their outstanding contributions over the past year.
-Terri Gogetap, President FBG Service Corporation
Mark has an outstanding work ethic. His drive for quality outcomes is seen in the hours he pours into his project work, floating daily to multiple accounts and doing the extra work he is asked to do. Mark is extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of the job and is always there to offer help. No matter what is asked of him, the results of his efforts remains top notch. Bravo, Mark! Thanks for being such a great team player.
James has floated between multiple accounts and his quality follows no matter what account he is assigned. He communicates with us and always helps until the last bit of work has been completed. While being asked to move between multiple accounts, Jim never complains and consistently keeps a smile on his face. James, your positive attitude is contagious. Thank you for all you do!
PEOPLE DEVELOPMENT & EMPOWERMENT
Maria is being recognized for this award because of her desire to make sure everyone in the field knows the job and knows what tools to use to get the job done, thereby instilling confidence and purpose. She travels as needed without complaint and helps develop those with whom she works into becoming efficient FBG employees. Maria, we appreciate your positive influence, dedication and hard work!
Brenda has worked with FBG for only a short time but has already proven that she deserves this award. Brenda has gone above and beyond to make sure all employees she works with realize and reach their full potential. Brenda’s mission is to teach her staff how to work efficiently and independently no matter what the task at hand. Thank you, Brenda, for your care for those with whom you work and the sense of pride you instill.
STABILITY & GROWTH
Brittney has built a reputation of being responsible and accountable. Brittney was placed into a unique promotional opportunity this past year where she felt uneven terrain. Rather than letting herself sink she taught herself to float, and then to fly. She has continued to pass her confidence onto her team who are appreciative to see an example of someone starting on the bottom rung and quickly reaching success. Thank you, Brittney, for being an inspiration to others.
Chelsie has an unwavering determination to make her account better; not only for her and her coworkers, but also for the client whom she works. Chelsie’s results-driven work ethic shows how much time and dedication she has put into her job. We have all seen her growth within the company and appreciate every step she has taken along the way. Chelsie, the future in which you are creating looks bright. Keep up the magnificent work!

Alicia, thank you for sharing your many talents with us and your team members.
Ellen Van Blaricom
Ellen is a Byoplanet machine aficionado. She has successfully adapted the machine into quarterly use at her account, Cardinal Community Schools.
