Happy (T)Hanksgiving, Part Six

Aw, just look at our sweet Hank. In November 2013, Cassie Hahn, an 11-year veteran of the Crowley administrative team, brought in her roly-poly English bulldog pup with more wrinkles than a linen suit on a hot day. The short little legs of this irresistible bundle of fur could barely support his king-sized head and the Maryland office immediately fell in love. Hank inspired our very first “Hanksgiving” post and for the sixth year, the tradition continues. Like Hank, Crowley has matured…

What the FADGI %*#&!? Part Two: Is FADGI for Everyone?

Lesson from my parents: Just because it’s cool doesn’t make it right. As a teen, this advice was definitely not well-received. A few decades removed, I can more appreciate the sentiment (and also the fact that it was more likely budget-driven than about taking the moral high road). It might be a bit of a stretch, but FADGI is cool…and it also isn’t (yet) for everyone. Recap: What is FADGI? In Part One of this series, we identified FADGI as a common set of…

Happy Hanksgiving, Part Five

Five years ago this month, Cassie Hahn, our Crowley technical support administrator, introduced us to her English bulldog, Hank. At just eight weeks old, this ball of walking wrinkles could barely hold up his head or keep his eyes open and became the impetus for our very first “Hanksgiving” blog post. Today, Hank – via the wonder of digital photography (because he’s just too darn big to drag into the office) – is still the Crowley Thanksgiving emblem, giving ol’ Tom…

BIS, Grayson County College and a Bottle of Red…

Celebrate and Appreciate

It seems fitting for our last post of 2016 to feature just a few of the many employees that make the Crowley world go ‘round. Each year at the corporate holiday celebration, those with significant anniversaries for the year are recognized (“significant” is defined as a five year span). Although not all are present because of geography, each is mentioned by name and for their contribution to the company. Below, please meet our 2016 anniversary notables and join us in…
