Professional's Choice Employees

Professional’s Choice held a special luncheon to ring in the new year and recognize four employees for 20 years of exceptional service to the company and the equine sports medicine industry.

Twenty-year Service Awards were presented to Julieta Zamudio (Production Specialist), Veronica Catalan (Senior Saddle Pad Production Specialist), Cynthia Jacobo (Production Manager), and Oscar Velazquez (Shipping Specialist).

Monty Crist, Professional’s Choice General Manager stated, “Their dedication and service to this company is greatly appreciated. We’re a big family here and these individuals have been part of our team for a very long time. Commitment and loyalty are scarce qualities, but these four have proven that close-knit companies with core values still exist today.”

In 2002, they witnessed Professional’s Choice, a company they’d put their hearts and souls into, become the authorized licensee for Wrangler® Apparel Corp. Three years later, in 2005, they participated in the launch of the new SMB Elite™, a revolutionary boot resulting from the culmination of year’s worth of hard work and collaboration. These employees chose Professional’s Choice as their second family and Professional’s Choice admires their loyalty and support throughout the past two decades.

True to form, at this years holiday celebration, Dal & Nina Scott, Professional’s Choice founders presented all employees with a generous cash bonus. The gracious gesture showed true comradery and appreciation for another year of great products, hard work, and industry standard setting.
