“I am so proud of our team. Every single employee chose to have a vaccination, which made reopening all the easier, ”said Mike Marcus in a statement. “At the beginning of the pandemic, our managers strengthened themselves, organized themselves and found a way to provide their customers with excellent service. This was the result of strong leadership, especially from Graciella and Zadoc. “
“Graciella and Zadoc reflect the bright future of Echo Lake,” said Doug Mankoff. “I am so impressed with how well they take care of their customers and the wisdom they generously share with colleagues in helping them be the best sales representatives they can be.
