2023 Core Value Awards and Milestone Anniversaries

December 11, 2023

At Accel Wealth Management, recognizing our employees and their hard work, dedication, and accomplishments is important to us. This past weekend, we gathered for our annual Accel Holiday Party in West Des Moines. We celebrated this past year, acknowledged those who observed a Milestone Anniversary with the agency, and honored this year’s recipients of our Accel Core Value Awards.

Milestone Anniversaries:

As each year passes, we gain another year of excellence and experience because of the important work each of our employees engages in daily. Our Milestone Anniversaries are those of five-year increments, meaning individuals celebrating an anniversary of five, ten, fifteen years, or more. We had fifteen employees who celebrated a milestone in 2023. Some of the individuals who celebrated a Milestone Anniversary in 2023 are:

Shane Thomas, RJ Lee & Associates – 5 years
