Congratulations to Jimmie Petsel, Socket's You-Make-The-Difference Winner for April!


Jimmie acts as the “eyes and hands” of our business center – he’s constantly on the road and off visiting customers' offices in order to find and test any physical issues, as well as handling installations for our new business customers.


Congratulations to Cherie Verslues, Accounts Payable Specialist, on being named Socket’s You-Make-The-Difference award winner for March!


As a member of the Accounting team, Cherie’s job is easy to describe – “I basically pay Socket’s bills.” But actually getting that done is another matter! Whether it’s tracking down payments, or making sure everyone has their paperwork filled out on time, Cherie frequently ends up having to hound people – and she manages to do it with charm and kindness.


Socket participated in the 2016 Rootin’ Tootin’ Chili Cookoff on Saturday, February 27th at the Holiday Inn Executive Center. This year, we had a group of seven employees represent Socket and cook up some delicious chili!


With over 50 companies participating and 2,000 hungry chili eaters, the event exceeded its $85,000 goal and raised over $100,000 for the Boys and Girls Club of Columbia! A record-breaking year for the Chili Cookoff!
