Hertz Furniture, the premier school and office furniture supplier, won the title "Charter Schools Champion Vendor" during the annual Florida Charter School Champions Awards. The event, which took place on November 15, 2012, was hosted by the Florida Consortium of Public Charter Schools (FCPCS) – the state's leading charter school advocacy and support organization.
The award ceremony celebrates individuals who excel in their work on behalf of the charter school movement and gives thanks to people it considers their most valuable contributors. Other award categories included in the event are: charter school principal, community leader, teacher, pioneer, and more. Accepting the honor on behalf of Hertz Furniture were Regional Client Relationship Manager Alain Pin and National Projects Coordinator Jennifer Urogi.
FCPCS President Robert Haag had this to say: "Working with quality vendors is essential to a charter school's success. Hertz Furniture System and their representatives in Florida, including Alain Pino, truly understand the important role they play in the success of a school. This recognition is our way of thanking them and everyone who makes charter schools in Florida better."
