2017 MIT Excellence Awards + Collier Medal ceremony

Our next Excellence Award for Serving the Client goes to an assistant manager in HR/Payroll. His name is Darren Scartissi, and his colleagues say that he has dedicated his time at MIT to ensuring that: no email is neglected, no detail is missed, and no questions are left unanswered. Let me read just a few excerpts from Darren’s fan mail:

At a large, high-volume, interdisciplinary lab, all manner of strange and complex issues arise. Whether its SAP snafus, tax issues, or payroll mishaps, Darren responds within hours, if not minutes, and dedicates his full time and attention to ensuring the best solution.”

As a result of his expertise, Darren saved our program more than $500,000 in withholding tax, leaving us more funds to invest in our mission as an institution.”

“I have come to realize that Darren delivers his exceptional level of customer service to all corners of the Institute. I can’t imagine where he finds the hours or the energy to tackle so many issues on so many fronts without ever losing his cool or his amazing attention to detail.”

Darren, we’re honored to present you with your Excellence Award.
