Cincom Quixote Award Winners Announced

CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwire - May 3, 2011) - Each year on April 23rd (or the closest business day after), Cincom celebrates Quixote Day in honor of the death of Miguel de Cervantes, author of the 17th century novel "Don Quixote." This years' ceremony honored 36 exemplary employees and was held April 25th at Cincom corporate headquarters.


"Cincom has built itself on a foundation of guiding principles that we sum up in three words: character, competence and commitment. Don Quixote did joust windmills, but those who understand the book also know that he embodies many of the values we try to promote at Cincom. He had imagination, compassion, discipline and he took great joy in every task, whatever the outcome," said Tom Nies, Cincom CEO.


The honorees receive a gold Quixote Club ring for their initial nomination and a specially engraved Quixote medallion that depicts the qualities exemplified by the inductees. On both sides of the bronze medallion, these key qualities surround the symbols that have become synonymous with the image of Cervantes' Don Quixote, the famed seeker of the impossible dream. For each additional nomination, honorees receive a Quixote medallion along with a diamond added to their ring, presented to them by their department managers.
