Nick named to the Arkansas Business 40 Under 40 List
Over much of the last decade, Garver’s growth has been reflected in both size and programs devoted to evolving its growing list of employees and their impact on their communities. Central in that progress has been Corporate Communications Leader Laura Nick, who was recently named to the Arkansas Business 40 Under 40 list.
Nick is joined on the magazine’s 26th annual list by other business and community leaders representing a variety of industries.
“For more than a century, Garver has strived to provide exemplary service to our clients, and that wouldn’t be possible without our strong internal teams,” said Garver CEO Dan Williams. “Laura’s efforts in building a talented team has helped advance Garver’s position in a competitive industry, and we congratulate her on this well-deserved recognition.”
Hired in 2011 as Garver’s first corporate recruiter, Nick now leads Garver’s in-house Communications Team tasked with spearheading all branding and internal communication efforts. She has also played a role in expanding and advancing Garver’s internal initiatives, such as GarverGives, its employee-driving corporate-giving arm, and Garver Connect, an internal employee resource group created to recruit, retain, and develop Garver’s women. Since 2015, GarverGives has supported 217 organizations, contributed more than $450,000, and volunteered more than 1,200 hours. Garver has also appeared on Zweig Group’s annual “Best Firms to Work For” list in each of the last five years.
This year, Nick has led Garver’s centennial celebration events at all 28 offices and the Garver Chain Reaction Challenge, which allowed Garver to promote STEM learning and encourage the next generation of engineers by donating STEM kits and funds to 100 schools across its footprint.
