“Celebrating 90 years in business is a tremendous accomplishment, and our success is built on the relationships we have with clients, partners, and dedicated Healthcare and service industry professionals around the world. They’ve challenged us to innovate the modern professional apparel industry and maintain our leadership position, and we are humbled by their support over the years,” said Barco President and CEO David Murphy.
At its four-day celebration event, supermodel Cheryl Tiegs, who modeled for Barco early in her career in the 1960s, made a surprise guest appearance to help present its first annual “Made to Matter” award, created to honor the world’s most inspiring healthcare professionals. The winner, Tatiana Giusti, MD, M.Sc., advising professor and founder of Proyecto Mayu in Venezuela, will receive a year’s supply of new scrubs and a $5,000 donation to the charitable cause of her choice.
“At Barco, the value of caring for others is at the heart of everything we stand for,” added Murphy. “The purpose of our work is focused on providing comfort for those who care for others – helping them to look, feel, and perform their best. The goal of our Barco Made to Matter™ Award is to take that mentality one step further to honor and recognize Healthcare’s most inspiring Healthcare professionals, who work tirelessly to provide care to their patients and community.”
