Crescent Retreat 2018!

retreat2Last weekend, the Crescent team headed to Palm Springs for their annual company retreat. Bright and early Friday morning, employees from Irvine, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Ohio journeyed to the desert ready to get the weekend started. The getaway was packed with team-building exercises, group discussions and a competitive game of Family Feud—Crescent Style. The event is designed to create opportunities for the team to bond as a whole as well as have each voice heard in conversations regarding company culture and improvement.

Crescent’s CEO, Brian Fischbein, started out Day 1 with a speech and awards ceremony to show his appreciation to the company. Those recognized include the following:

Recruiter of the Year: Derek Berger


Salesperson of the Year: Eric Kinsey

Rookie of the Year in Recruiting: Kyra Willans

Rookie of the Year in Sales: Rachele Veeck

Most Improved Recruiter: Erik Gomez

Most Improved Salesperson: Cynthia Lopez

Operations Person of the Year: Jordan Caffall

Also recognized during the ceremony were the following employees who made at least 500k in GP and earned their way into President’s Club! Those who earned it will receive an all-inclusive trip to Cabo San Lucas in May along with the Executive Team and Operations Person of the Year.

President’s Club Winners:

  • Michael Chiang
  • Eric Kinseyfamfeud3
  • Brian Albano

After the awards ceremony, the team enjoyed Panera for lunch and finished off the evening with a team-building exercise to further strengthen trust and culture in the workplace.

Day 2 began with updates from HR and a taco bar lunch, concluding with free time for interoffice mingling. The weekend wrapped up on Sunday morning after breakfast and all offices headed back home.

Overall, the retreat was a much needed step back from the day-to-day to evaluate our performance and identify areas where we can improve. All offices are looking forward to implementing the plans for improvement and seeing results! After all, one of Crescent’s slogans is to Lead by Example, Measure by Results.

Stay tuned for updates on the Cabo trip of 2018!
