Braintree, MA – The Peabody Companies recently presented Derek Frazier, director of information technology, and Whitney Pulsifer, senior director of strategic initiatives, with the Edward A. Fish Achievement Award during its 2022 annual business meeting at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro.
The Edward A. Fish Achievement Award is named for founder Ed Fish, who launched Peabody Properties in 1976 and passed away in 2010. The award recognizes individuals for embodying the Peabody mission, modeling excellence, and performing in a manner that consistently goes above and beyond the call of duty.
The duo was lauded for working as a cohesive team and spending countless hours safeguarding important information from corruption, compromise, or loss. This consistent effort includes educating the Peabody team about phishing or encryption, training members of staff on multi-factor authentication, and working with third parties to carry out regular security audits.
Frazier was selected for the honor by company principals based on his excellent work performance, enhancing the efficiency and coordination of the company’s computer systems, and for his consistent ability to lead by example. Frazier joined the Peabody Companies in 2013 as an MIS administrator, advanced to MIS manager in 2018, and was recently promoted to director of IT.
Pulsifer, who joined the Peabody Companies in 2015, was selected for the honor by company principals for contributing to the firm’s overall success by developing effective corporate strategies, creating proactive business planning models, and overseeing the development and implementation of key projects that support the effective operation of the firm.
Frazier and Pulsifer were two of several achievement award recipients honored during the 2022 employee recognition award ceremony, which takes place annually.
