Hegele Logistic received Angel Award at the Wings of Hope Gala

Hegele Logistic received the Angel Award for Community Outreach at the Imerman Angels’ Wings of Hope Gala in 2014. Over 300 guests attended the gala, which was held at the Ritz-Carlton Chicago.

Christel Kaiser, Director of Human Resources/QEHS and Gosia Kochanski, Executive Director of Accounting and Finance, accepted the award on stage. Hegele Logistic received this award for supporting the promotion of Imerman Angels by equipping its fleet of trucks with the Imerman Angels logo and enlisting the help of all of their employees to continually spread the word about Imerman Angels in the hospitals and cancer centers, which are visited on a daily basis. Since it is an international company, Hegele Logistic is able to spread the word about Imerman Angels to co-workers around the globe, such as Europe, North America, Asia, and Australia.

Christoph Sitzer (CEO of Hegele Logistic and Board of Director Member of Imerman Angels) is very proud and thankful for receiving the award. “It is a pleasure supporting Imerman Angels and its mission and we look forward to continue having a powerful and strong relationship in the future,” says Christoph Sitzer.
