Richard A. "Rick" Smith, CEO of Securus Technologies said, "Kate has reported to me for six years as Vice President of Human Resources at Securus Technologies - she is a key member of our Executive Team. Ms. Lengyel has managed our Associate growth from 400 in 2008 to 1,000 today while our profitability has increased from $40 million to over $100 million in 2014. This growth could not be accomplished without taking full advantage of Kate's attributes which include hard work, attention to detail, business/personal integrity - and ability to get results personally while working with others to improve their results. That is her job."
Smith continued, "Recognizing Kate with this prestigious award is great - but it does not come as a surprise to me as she has the personal attributes that will always have her achieving beyond reasonable expectations. She was up against some very good competition this year from nationally recognized human resources executives – and came out as the winner – others clearly understand what she has accomplished in her career."
