SYRACUSE, NY – December 23, 2019 – Barton & Loguidice was presented with the “Above and Beyond Award” by the New York State Employer Support of the Guard & Reserve (ESGR) at a ceremony on Thursday, December 19 at the Liverpool, NY offices of Barton & Loguidice.

Barton & Loguidice implemented long-standing policies and provided support for Richardson and his family which included, fast-tracking project assignments, assembling needed benefit information, and establishing an office-wide Meal Train to provide dinners to Richardson’s family while he was serving abroad.

B&L is receiving this award for their support, understanding, and caring of a deployed employee as well as their leadership responsibilities for doing the right thing for their employees,” said Paul Geiss, Chairman of the CNY Committee of the ESGR.  “B&L provided Major Richardson’s family with support and made the transition as seamless as possible, enabling him to focus on his deployed mission.”

A resident of Brunswick, NY, Richardson specializes in planning, design and construction and has extensive experience as a Project Manager on a variety of projects involving drinking water and wastewater systems. Richardson earned his B.S. in Environmental Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) and is a Professional Engineer in New York. 

Additional ESGR awards were presented to Richardson’s direct Supervisor and Albany Executive Manager.
