Recognizing Leadership Excellence

by BrightKey | 30 Dec 2016
We proudly announce the recipients of the inaugural Dave Elam Leadership Award!

Dave Elam, BrightKey’s Chief Operations Officer until his untimely death in January 2016, left an indelible impression on everyone he met. Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, “A man is what he thinks about all day long.” If this statement is true, then Dave embodied the values that BrightKey holds dear: collaboration, integrity, accountability, reliability, flexibility, generosity, and an eye on the future. Dave dedicated 24 years of his life to making BrightKey the successful and growing organization that you see today.

As a tribute to Dave’s contribution and commitment, BrightKey President and CEO Rita Hope Counts has established the Dave Elam Leadership Award. This annual award honors team members who capture the qualities that made Dave such a special and integral part of BrightKey.

We proudly announce the recipients of the inaugural Dave Elam Leadership Award: Kim Confer, Turnkey Operations Manager, and Delvon Whitmire, Government Contract Director. Their dedication and actions exemplify the leadership qualities that this award represents.

Our heartiest congratulations to Kim and Delvon…and a very special thank you to Dave.
