The 2020 Dennis Difference Award

Congratulations to Mario Tribuzio, our 2020 Dennis Difference Award recipient!

The Dennis Difference Award was established in 2015. Nominated by their peers, the Dennis Difference Award is presented to one deserving employee each year. Among several considerations, the award is voted on and honors the employee’s distinguished commitment to upholding our company values. For many there is no higher form of recognition than being recognized by one’s peers. This Award does just that – it is for employees by employees.

From Mario’s nomination:

When I think of someone this lives the Dennis Difference Mario is the first that comes to mind.

From a professional standpoint, I have witnessed him working with new accounts to help set them up for success. An example would be helping a new owner learn the meat business and how to make it more profitable, as well as maintain the best quality cuts to help establish the business. He is always helpful at reception should there be a customer that has questions about a product or isn’t quite sure exactly what it is that they might be looking for. He also is a great resource for new Dennis Account Executives should they have questions or need support.

He is a valued member of the safety committee and often contributes great suggestions. He is also active in his local fire dept, the Lions club and his church. He sets a good example and is often willing to help where needed.

I believe that what we consider our company core values are the same as his personal standards.
