“It’s an honor to have our investor relations efforts recognized among an outstanding group of nominees,” Casella said. “The entire senior management team takes great pride in working to provide investors with a transparent and honest view of our company. None of this would be possible without the outstanding service being provided to our customers and communities each day by our frontline essential workers and we are grateful for their continued efforts.”
Casella was honored to be selected amongst a top-notch group of candidates for this award, including the senior management teams at Domino’s Pizza and Essex Property Trust and was also nominated for Best Overall Investor Relations for a small-cap alongside Talos Energy, Suncrest Bank, Sixth Street Specialty Lending, Virtus Investment Partners, and category winner, Stoneridge.
According to Coletta, Casella’s IR and finance teams have focused their efforts on engaging more deeply with investors focusing on Environment, Sustainability, and Governance (ESG) issues over the past year and it has proven to be a key component to the overall success of their investor relations. “We are one of the few companies that is in the business of enabling sustainability amongst the communities and customers we serve. This unique focus remains an essential part of our long-term strategy and aligns well with the emerging ESG investing focus.”
