Faith Technologies’ Madison Branch Recognized with Department of Defense Patriot Award

Madison, Wis. (June 21, 2017) – Faith Technologies’ Heath Luedtke, Pat McGettigan and Matt Sabee received the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR)’s Patriot Award for providing extraordinary support to employees who serve in the National Guard and Reserve in Wisconsin. This is the fourth Patriot Award Faith Technologies has received.

The ESGR, a Department of Defense operational committee, works to develop and promote supportive workplaces for National Guard and Reserve service members. Air National Guard Master Sergeant Neil Murray, associate project manager for Faith Technologies, nominated Luedtke, McGettigan, Sabee and the company, for this award because of the resources, job security, and support the company offers to employees throughout military leaves.

“Faith Technologies is proud to employ many service men and women who make sacrifices to serve our country,” Luedtke, vice president of the Faith Technologies’ Madison branch and mission critical group manager, said. “We’re honored to be recognized for providing them with a supportive work environment while they serve our nation.”

Faith Technologies employees Brian Zager, director of engineering, and Evan Blakeman, project manager, were recognized with the same award in 2014 and 2015.
