Auberle CEO, John Lydon, was named one of the Pittsburgh Business Times 2014 Diamond Award winners. The Diamond Awards honors the region’s top CEO’s and presidents. Being the only social service nonprofit recognized, shines a bright light on Auberle as a social service agency that creates healthy children, strong families and vibrant communities.
“John believes in doing whatever it takes to help Auberle’s clients achieve their goals and become independent, self-sufficient members of the community.” said Stephanie Walsh, Auberle’s COO. “John teaches our staff to treat every single visitor, volunteer, colleague and donor like they are valued member of the Auberle family.”
Diamond Award winners were selected based on an evaluation of their service philosophy, relationship to employees and contributions to the community. Awardees are named in three categories: small to medium for-profit, large for-profit and non-profit. John Lydon was selected in the non-profit category.
