In back-to-back announcements, Orlando, Fla.-based Massey Services notes that the executive VP and CFO of the company, Jean Nowry, and the Massey family have each been honored by local organizations in recent weeks.
First, the Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center of Florida presented the Massey family with the Tess Wise White Rose Award, in recognition of contributions and commitments through both Massey Services and the Harvey and Carol Massey Foundation.
“We’re honored to receive this award from the Holocaust Memorial Resource and Education Center,” Chairman and CEO Harvey Massey, a member of the Pest Management Professional Hall of Fame (Class of 2008), said in a news release. “One of our company’s guiding philosophies is ‘We believe in being a contributing member to the communities in which we serve.’ Our family and our entire Massey Services team have embraced this, and collectively we have focused on supporting education, the arts and health services for more than 35 years.”
In addition, Nowry was named a 2021 Woman of the Year by Orlando magazine. Like the Masseys, Nowry has been deeply involved in philanthropy and giving back in the Central Florida community for more than 25 years. She has served as Chairwoman for both United Arts of Central Florida and Junior Achievement of Central Florida. She currently sits on the board of directors for the Orlando Ballet. She also supports Kids House of Seminole County, Autism Speaks and Making Strides Against Breast Cancer.
“I’m honored to be recognized as one of Orlando Magazine’s Women of the Year,” Nowry, who joined Massey Services in 1998 as director of accounting, said in a news release. “I’m passionate about supporting our community and organizations that benefit the arts, education and health. I’m also very proud to see the impact our Massey Services team is making throughout all the communities where we provide service.”
