GAITHERSBURG, MD — March 2, 2012 — GXS, a leading provider of business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce solutions, today announced that it has named Carey Wachtel its 2011 GXS Humanitarian and Todd Hill Award winner. The award honors the memory of Todd Hill, a QRS (Inovis) employee who lost his life during the tragedy of September 11, 2001. Each year since the merger of GXS and Inovis, GXS has recognized the outstanding community service efforts of one employee with a cash award and a matching contribution to the non-profit charity of the award winner’s choice.
“The GXS Humanitarian and Todd Hill Award honors the memory of a dedicated individual who had a significant impact on the world and community around him. We believe in encouraging and recognizing our employees who continue to make a difference in how we live,” said George Hall, senior vice president of human resources at GXS. “Carey’s work is an inspiration and truly reflects the spirit in which this award was created.”
Carey supports multiple local charities by serving food to the hungry, raising money through individual donations and assisting with annual fundraising events. Her work with young adults leaving the foster care system helps transition them to independent living. Additionally, she dedicates her time to a travelling baseball team, local animal shelters and countless others.
Open to all global employees of GXS, the GXS Humanitarian and Todd Hill Award recognizes an employee for outstanding work supporting non-profit charitable programs. All community service activities are taken into consideration.
