Michael Kurland and His Executive Team Receives Patriot Award

Nominated for Support during Team Member’s Deployment

Orange, CA. (August 18, 2021) – Branded Group CEO Michael Kurland, along with his executive team, were recently nominated for The Patriot Award by employee and Navy Reservist, Steven Jamarillo. The award is given by the Employer Support of the Guard & Reserve (ESGR) program for supervisors who provide support during their employee’s active service

“We are honored to be nominated for this prestigious award,” Kurland said. “More importantly, I and the entire team at Branded Group are grateful for Steven’s service along with all of the dedicated military personnel for their commitment to our country’s freedoms.”

The Patriot Award was created to recognize the efforts of employers who support their active Guard or Reserve team members and their families during their deployments. This includes flexible schedules, periodic time off, extended leaves of absence, and support for family members. Kurland and his team received a Patriot Award certificate as well as a lapel pin.

The mission of the ESGR, a committee within the Department of Defense is to recognize employers as well as strengthen the relationship between them and their service member employees.

“The Branded Group team is privileged to work alongside Steven,” Kurland said. “He is a shining example of our core values and our vision to “create future humanitarian leaders.”
