Inheriting the OCTO Award plaque from our 2020 winner (the talented Holly Garringer), this person has exemplified all of the true makings of an Octo Award recipient as defined:
1) Displays fortitude in the eyes of unsurmountable odds
2) Demonstrates the ability to adapt to new circumstances rapidly
3) Tackles new challenges as though he/she has 8 arms
Beyond those traits, this person has been incredibly consistent and reliable from the very start. They consistently look for ways to better our processes and find solutions to help the team succeed, all without being asked to do so. As a foundational member of the commercial team at AMG as we know it today, this person leads their team with confidence and awareness, but without a shred of arrogance or cynicism (must be the country in them…). Their presence and leadership has become an invaluable asset over the last year at AMG and we look forward to seeing how they continue grow with the team in 2021.
Congratulations to the recipient of the 2021 Octo Award…. Alvin Edwards!

Joining the ranks of our 2020 ROTY, Jake McCain, this person hit the ground running in their employment with AMG. Though this person has not even been with us for a full year, they have taken their given role and expanded it far beyond our expectations. Juggling the responsibilities of transition coordinator, assistant, business developer, event planner, process creator and marketing creator, this person is truly an Octo in training. Beyond their work in the office and out in the field, this person routinely goes out of their way to support their coworkers on a more personal level. Whether that means bringing banana bread (my personal favorite) and cookies to share on a business outing, or simply reaching out to their coworkers when they know they need it, the connections that this person forges are a perfect example of what makes AMG, well, AMG.
An enormous thank you and congratulations to our 2021 Rookie of the Year, Catie Sullivan!!
