Chris and Amy Friel, VoDaVi  Technologies

This year Bridgewell honors Christopher and Amy Friel of VoDaVi Technologies, LLC with the Visionary Leadership Award.

The Visionary Leadership Award recognizes outstanding persons for excellence to a community, social cause or to Bridgewell. It is intended to honor those who are truly inspirational to others. Bridgewell’s partnership with VoDaVi Technologies LLC has been vital to Bridgewell’s efforts in providing the highest level of care to the people in our services.

Chris and Amy’s wholehearted engagement and efforts in support of Bridgewell through VoDaVi’s excellent IT services, their generous philanthropic contributions and their integration of people from Bridgewell’s employment support program into the VoDaVi workforce are just some of the reasons why we are honoring them. They are leading the way and demonstrating for other business owners how to be an innovative partner in a variety of meaningful ways with a non-profit, for which we are very grateful.
