GENEDGE Annual Report 2020

A Message From Our Board Chair

Board of Trustees

Chair Jeffrey S. Jaycox, Chair, President & Owner, Tabet Manufacturing Co.

Navigating, Adversity and Building Resilience Together In reflecting on 2020, it was everything except business as usual.

Vice Chair Douglas Frost, Vice Chair, PE, Senior Vice President, Dewberry LLC

Governor Northam’s declaring manufacturing as ‘essential’ to our Commonwealth was critically important to our economy. Despite new challenges, GENEDGE continued to perform due to the dedicated Associates within the organization that stepped up to the challenge, responding to adversity by bringing their best forward while working as a team. Thanks to GENEDGE’s Leadership, we adapted quickly to keep people safe, while implementing new ways to remain responsive and evolve our service models to meet the needs of the clients we serve and the conditions in which we must operate. As we look towards the future, we must continue to be flexible in our thinking and adapt our operations as needed. I am extremely proud of every member of the GENEDGE team who has worked tirelessly to support each other and their clients during this challenging time. As we move into 2021 the team will continue to work hard individually and collectively on behalf of manufacturing and industry in the Commonwealth, especially for those affected by COVID-19. Each day continues to bring on new challenges and everyone steps up to make it work.
