In May, the Crystal Lake Chamber of Commerce awarded INTREN with the 2016 Robert O. Covey Business of the Year Award. Recipients of this prestigious award must exhibit business success in the McHenry County area, be actively involved in professional business organizations and demonstrate a steadfast culture of service and philanthropy.
This annual Robert O. Covey Business of the Year Award is presented in memory of community and business leader Robert Covey, a respected attorney, elected official and bank executive. Additionally, Mr. Covey held positions on the District School Board, was Vice-Chair of the McHenry County Board, and former President and CEO of a local financial institution – all this while performing countless hours of service as a volunteer for numerous organizations.
INTREN was awarded for its commitment to earning trust as a steward of its customers’ priorities, its community’s interests and company’s success. Beyond the company’s success, INTREN was honored for its far-reaching community involvement, supporting organizations such as: CASA, Lakeside Legacy Foundation, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Girls on the Run, Raue Center for the Arts, and Athena International, to just mention a few.
“All of us at INTREN are honored to receive this recognition named after this exceptional individual who strongly believed – as we do – that stewardship is not just a way of doing business; it is a way of life,” said Loretta Rosenmayer, INTREN Founder & CEO.
