From her commitment to customers to her volunteerism in the community, Amanda Plakosh-Angeles goes above and beyond. So much so, she has earned Lexmark’s highest employee honor, the Customer for Life Award.
“Amanda has been exemplary in living the vision of Lexmark through strengthening customer accounts, employee mentoring, her dedication to corporate citizenship and more,” said Paul Rooke, chairman and CEO of Lexmark.
Plakosh-Angeles serves as Lexmark’s global sustainability analyst. She joined Lexmark in materials development in 2004 and moved to the sustainability team in 2007. She is actively involved in the HDNG: Hispanic Diversity Network Group and GALE: Gay-Straight Alliance of Lexmark Employees. She helped coordinate the Trees for Tracks project with CSX, and regularly recruits volunteers and participates in numerous other volunteer activities.
“Much of the advancement Lexmark has made in the world of corporate social responsibility and sustainability – both internally and externally – can be directly related to Amanda’s efforts,” said her manager, John Gagel, corporate sustainability manager. “One will not find a Lexmark employee more committed to the Lexmark Vision and Values and Customers for Life.”
The Customer for Life Award is the pinnacle of the Living the Vision Awards Program, Lexmark’s official employee recognition and reward program for employees who show outstanding demonstration of one or more of the company’s eight values.
