Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 16, 2013
Brian Clarke, Managing Partner of Kensington International’s Search Division, is the winner of this year’s Human Resources Management Association of Chicago (HRMAC) Volunteer of the Year Award. HRMAC is made up of 740 companies representing over 8,000 HR professionals in the Chicago area, many of whom volunteer their time to run hundreds of events. The annual award recognizes those members that go “above and beyond” to help the organization further its mission.
As a long-time and active member, Clarke was formally appointed, and informally drafted into various HRMAC leadership roles. He has served as a member of the Board of Directors and held multiple terms on the Membership, Nominating and Leadership Series committees. Clarke continues to serve on the Leadership Series committee for the 2014 programs.
As Managing Partner and cofounder of Kensington International, the Chicago office of Career Partners International, Clarke has been a long-time sponsor of HRMAC events, including CHRO-only round tables, summits and the HRMAC Leadership Series. Kensington International has graciously hosted meetings, sponsored events and offered its internal thought leaders as presenters and chairpersons of various committees.
Bernadette Patton, President of HRMAC, shared, “Brian embodies the spirit, commitment and passion that the award seeks to recognize. He is truly one of our ‘unsung heroes’ who has provided distinguished service to further the HRMAC mission. Anyone who has worked with Brian knows how focused he is on service excellence and absolute dependability and accountability.”
Clarke will receive his award at the HRMAC Summit general session on October 29th at 1:00 p.m., where Kensington International will exhibit at booth #411 during the summit.
This is not the first time a Kensington International associate has been awarded this honor. Pamela Wilson, VP of Client Relationships, received the award in 2010 for her contributions.
Since its founding in 1915, HRMAC has been leading the dialogue on workplace strategy, connecting HR leaders with the industry’s best-in-class resources, and growing Chicago area companies and talent.
