2020 Thomas D. Sanders Award Winners

The Thomas D. Sanders Award of Excellence is the company’s highest honor and is presented annually to a deserving recipient.

When Tom – a member of our founding family – led our organization, he helped create a culture rooted in three things he thought were incredibly important to our business: people, performance, and relationships.

This award started in 2008 honoring his namesake and how his spirit lives on in the next generation of employee owners. This year has been an extraordinary one, and we felt as an organization that two of our teammates deserve to be recognized with this honor. Therefore, we are proud to announce that Jason Oldham and Spencer Borghoff have been awarded the Thomas D. Sanders Award of Excellence. We will celebrate these two winners during our annual meeting on January 19. Please join us in congratulating these two very deserving winners!
