We would like to recognize one of our volunteers who celebrated his 15th anniversary with SCORE last month - Joe Ruf (SCORE Northeast Georgia).
Joe currently lives in Hiawassee, GA, which is fairly remote in the NE corner of Georgia. Joe served his country as a member of the US Air Force, and before joining SCORE, held the role of Vice President of BellSouth Information Systems.
Joe joined SCORE in October 2005 and has been making a lasting impact in the lives of clients ever since. Joe currently serves about 20-30 clients each year and typically ends each year with an NPS score of 100 or very close. A model of SCORE's tagline "For the Life of Your Business", Joe also maintains a follow-on rate of about 80%. Since 2009, Joe has served as lead mentor or co-mentor on over 960 mentoring sessions, helping over 140 different clients!
Joe's heart for service is not limited to SCORE either. He is also volunteers with Habitat for Humanity, and has made at least two overseas trips to help build houses for those is need.
Please join us in recognizing Joe Ruf for being such a valuable member of SCORE, his community, and the volunteering world at large!
