Business club seeks nominations for award
Strong, faith-based leadership. Making work a mission and a ministry.
Those were among attributes credited to last year’s winners of the inaugural Leading with Faith Award given by the Catholic Professional & Business Club of Omaha (CP&BC).
And nominees with similar attributes – living faith in the workplace – are being sought for the 2017 awards, which will be announced March 9 at the Leading with Faith Award luncheon in Omaha.
Nominees – from anywhere in the archdiocese – can be Catholic business owners, corporate or nonprofit executives, managers or supervisors. The award is open to anyone with management responsibilities who brings faith to bear in the workplace.
Clergy across the archdiocese have been contacted about submitting nominations, but anyone may submit a nominee. Nomination forms, including requirements and judging criteria, are available on the CP&BC website – cpbcomaha.org.
And last year’s winners?
Charles "Chuck" Olsen, CEO of OCI Insurance and Financial Services of Omaha, a member of St. Patrick Parish in Elkhorn, was honored for fostering "a workplace that truly values the person" through a "strong, faith-based leadership style."
And Tim Sully, development director for homeless shelter Siena/Francis House and member of St. Cecilia Parish, both in Omaha, was nominated in part for approaching his job and encouraging co-workers to approach theirs as a mission and a ministry.
