At a company event on December 8, McCourt LP Chairman Frank H. McCourt, Jr. announced that McCourt Global’s Lorraine Wong was the 2016 recipient of the 1893 Award, the annual award recognizing an employee of the McCourt enterprise who epitomizes the organization’s Guiding Principles through their performance and conduct.
“When I think of our core values – strong work ethic, positivity, integrity, resilience, and generosity – I can think of no finer example than Lorraine”, said Frank McCourt. “Thank you for your hard work and dedication to this organization for so many years.”
Ms. Wong, who joined the McCourt enterprise in 2008, is the fourth recipient of the 1893 Award, joining Austin Regolino of McCourt LP (2013), Francine Hughes of McCourt Global (2015), and Conqur Endurance Group CEO, Tracey Russell (2016), in being so recognized.
The 1893 Award is so-named in recognition of the McCourt family’s heritage which spans five generations to 1893 when an Irish immigrant by the name of John McCourt started The John McCourt Company, one of New England’s most successful road building companies. Since then, the McCourt family enterprise has grown and evolved. The values and the principles that guide it, however, remain the same.
