New York, NY - ACGM, Inc. (“ACGM”) employees took part in the Rock ‘n’ Roll New York 10K, a competitive running event organized in aid of various charities including The Silver Shield Foundation.
Carlos Abadi – CEO and President, Massi Ibrahim – Director, Merary Soto – Director, George Nixon – Director, and Barbara Abadi – Senior Managing Director, all based in the Firm’s New York office, travelled to Prospect Park in Brooklyn to compete in the 10K race which had around 4000 participants.
The event took place on a crisp fall morning and all of ACGM’s participants expressed their great enjoyment in taking part in the event. ACGM is proud of the fact that many of its employees are involved in sporting events outside of office hours. Merary Soto commented on the value of employee engagement in competitive sporting events.
“Beyond the obvious health benefits, events like this are a great opportunity to build and develop valuable skills that can be used in all areas of life, including business. Training for a 10k requires organization, discipline and determination in order to achieve a successful outcome, all skills that are required to succeed in the business world. These events also engage the Firm’s team spirit as employees lend their support and encouragement to the Firm’s participants.”
