Feb 27, 2020

Goodwill of the Finger Lakes CEO Dr. A. Gidget Hopf was honored by Goodwill Industries International (GII) with the prestigious J.D. Robins, Jr. Distinguished Career Award during the GII Annual Meeting of the Conference of Executives event held in Nashville, TN during the last week of February.

The award recognizes annually one Goodwill CEO for outstanding career contributions and dedication to the advancement of the Goodwill Industries movement over a span of at least 25 years, with at least 15 years as a CEO. The award was renamed in 1999 to honor the late J. D. Robins Jr. for his career-long impact and influence on Goodwill management and
process improvement.

Hopf has served nearly 34 years in her role as CEO of Goodwill of the Finger Lakes and its affiliate, The Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Earlier this year she announced that she will retire from her role on June 30, 2020.
