BOSTON – Nov. 9, 2016 – Continuum®, the only channel-exclusive IT management platform company, received a Go-Giver Award from HTG Peer Groups at HTG Q4 2016 Community Day on Wednesday, November 2, 2016 in Orlando, Florida. Presented to Mark Connolly, Vice President of Sales at Continuum, the Go-Giver Award is given to the vendor company that best demonstrates corporate responsibility through service to the community. Continuum was among five award winners presented from the main stage at the HTG ALL session. Community Day was part of the HTG Q4 2016 Meeting that took place on Monday, October 31 – Friday, November 4, 2016 in Orlando.
“Continuum is a fantastic HTG partner and is aligned with our mission of touching all aspects of our members’ lives and work,” said Arlin Sorensen, Founder and CEO of HTG Peer Groups. “We congratulate Continuum and are delighted to honor them with a Go-Giver Award for giving back to the community through its support of HTG and its work with the Continuum Veterans Foundation, providing financial support to charities that focus on helping veterans secure jobs in IT.”
At the HTG Q4 2015 and Q4 2016 meetings, Continuum and HTG hosted a silent auction in the exhibit hall to raise funds for Atlanta-based Hire Heroes USA, the pre-eminent national nonprofit organization providing veteran employment services, on behalf of the Continuum Veterans Foundation. Items were donated to the auction from various vendors, including Continuum Estate Wine and a Gold Ticket to Navigate 2017, Continuum’s fourth annual user conference, taking place on Monday, October 2 – Thursday, October 5, 2017 at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. In its second year, the HTG/Continuum silent auction has raised nearly $40,000 for Hire Heroes USA, $14,115 last year and $25,805 this year.
“Continuum believes that it is essential for successful companies to stand for a purpose beyond revenue and to support causes far greater, and the company does this through its work with the Continuum Veterans Foundation,” said Mark Connolly, Vice President of Sales at Continuum. “The amazing success of the silent auction would not have been possible without the incredible support of HTG and the member community. We are honored to be recognized with a HTG Go-Giver Award and look forward to continual support of veterans as well as HTG in its efforts.”
Continuum was selected for the Go-Giver Award based on its silent auction work, support of HTG’s Go-Giver Day in Q2 and Continuum’s support of all of HTG’s activities.
