Recently, The Niello Company hosted the 2016 Longevity Awards Dinner at the timeless and elegant Sutter Club. The Niello Company’s annual Longevity Awards recognizes employees for their years of service, in five year increments. With over 100 employees in attendance, there was much cause for celebration.
At this year’s awards dinner, 108 employees received a pin, accumulating 765 years of service! One pin recipient was Rick Niello himself, being honored with a 40 year pin, presented by his father, Richard Niello Sr. In 1995, Rick Niello took the reins of the company from his father, and became President. His brother, David Niello, is Vice President of The Niello Company and his third brother, Roger Niello, currently serves as Secretary of the Company.
In addition to Rick Niello earning a pin, 29 employees were recognized for 5 years of continuous employment, 9 employees for 10 years, 8 employees for 15 years, 5 employees for 20 years, 6 employees for 25 years (Michelle Meyer of The Management Office, Bruce Pettit of Acura, KC Ramos of Volvo, Chuck Towle of Acura, Janet Welling of BMW Elk Grove, and Jeret Williams of BMW Elk Grove), 2 employees for 30 years (Scott Glackin of BMW Sacramento and Ralph Velasques of Volkswagen), as well as Peter Maston, who also received a 40 year pin for his years of service with The Niello Company.
The entire evening was filled with food, laughter and celebration. The Niello Company had a lot to celebrate; a look at 2015, earning the title of Best Place to Buy a Car by the readers of Sacramento Magazine, Best Place to Work (Large Company) by Sacramento Business Journal, and Best Dealership to Work For by Automotive News, an excitement for the present, a brand new dealership which opened on Arden Way, housing Niello Maserati and Niello Alfa Romeo, and an appreciation for the future, seeing all of these dedicated employees continue their hard work for many years to come.
Thank you to all of our employees for their wonderful commitment to The Niello Company.
