People | Celebrating Michael and Kevin

Anniversary A Rt


After celebrating the start of many new careers at Bailey Edward over the last few months, it's about time we acknowledge the careers of those who act as mentors and leaders to our new staff. Congratulations to Michael Petti and Kevin Schnebly on two big milestones in their BE careers!

In the Chicago office, we celebrated Michael's 10th anniversary with a trip down memory lane. During the Chicago Read project, Michael would bring a cheesecake back with him for the office to share. We returned the favor by instead bringing the cheesecake to him! As recognition for his years of dedication and extraordinary work, Ellen and Robin presented Michael with a Mont Blanc fountain pen, a long-time architectural symbol of accomplishment.

Down in the Champaign, the office surprised Kevin for his 15th anniversary with his favorite food: chili! While staff happily slurped this unconventional celebratory snack, each took turns sharing stories not only of Kevin's accomplishments and hard work, but also his infectious personality and sense of humor. Kevin received a 3D printer to thank him for his hard work so far for which he has already returned the favor by building a model of Altgeld Hall!

Thank you, Michael and Kevin, for all your hard work over the years and we look forward to many more!
