ATLANTA, April 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HD Supply, Inc. (NASDAQ: HDS) proudly announces that two of its female leaders are recipients of prestigious awards in their industries.
Quiana Pinckney, Director of Strategic Communications, Public Relations and Investor Relations, was named to the Georgia chapter of the Public Relations Society of America’s (PRSA) inaugural “Forty Under 40” list, honoring the state’s best and brightest young communications professionals.
Rachel Rogers, Director of Information Technology for Sales, Customer Care and Marketing, was awarded “Salesforce MVP” Lifetime Status, which serves to recognize highly-knowledgeable Salesforce users who actively and consistently share their expertise with other customers on the Salesforce User Community platform.
“I am incredibly honored and privileged to work with these inspirational leaders as the best-of-the-best in their respective fields,” said Joe DeAngelo, Chairman and CEO. “These two leaders live continuous learning and development, and I, along with HD Supply, am proud to see their hard work, results and drive recognized and rewarded.”
Open to both PRSA Georgia members and non-members across the state, the Forty Under 40 program honors rising stars who excel in professional PR, marketing, advertising and/or social media roles, while also giving back to their industry and community. The honorees and program category winners were nominated by their peers and selected by a committee of former PRSA Georgia Chapter presidents.
Meanwhile, Salesforce MVP Lifetime Status requires a minimum of five years serving as a Salesforce MVP, and there is a special nomination process to be considered. Those who are awarded this honor must have demonstrated exceptional contributions and a continuous commitment to helping others succeed via the Salesforce User Community platform. Rogers, who has been recognized as a Salesforce MVP for six years running, is now one of approximately 50 individuals worldwide who has been awarded the honor of Lifetime Status, and she will soon be inducted into the Salesforce MVP Hall of Fame.
HD Supply prides itself on the belief that one of its greatest assets and differentiators is its people.
