ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- Mark E. Davitt, CEO of Continental Service Group, Inc., d/b/a ConServe, was recognized last night at a celebratory event to honor the 2018 ICON Award recipients at the Genesee Valley Club in Rochester, New York. Presented by the Rochester Business Journal, the ICON Honors awards recognizes Greater Rochester Area business leaders over the age of 60 for their notable success and demonstration of strong leadership both within and outside of their chosen field.
Mark was honored for his contributions to his community, his organization, and the collections industry. His vision and leadership have distinguished him amongst his colleagues within the business community and this induction ceremony was a recognition of his outstanding achievements and unrivaled ethics.
According to Marlene Bessette, President and CEO of the Catholic Family Center, “Mark brings an elevated sense of community involvement to his workplace. Through his organization’s Jeans for Charity and matching gift program, Mark makes corporate social responsibility visible every day. The program, which has been in place since 2008, is a unique way to give every employee a chance to make a difference to a charity or cause that has a personal meaning to them while getting to dress down in their favorite pair of jeans.” Sister Mary Anne Laurer, Director of Development at Sisters of Saint Joseph of Rochester, notes that “Mark is a business and community leader who fits the Rochester ICON description in every way. He is humble with no signs of ostentation, and he sees the bigger picture and acts generously on behalf of the community in vital areas of education and community engagement.” Mark’s Mission, Vision, and Values have served as the basis of his organization’s fundamental principles while simultaneously exemplifying the true essence of ethics and integrity for his team.

About ConServe’s Jeans For Charity program: ConServe’s Jeans For Charity initiative began in 2008 when the team’s employees had an idea to launch a program that would provide a way for the company’s mission of “improving the human condition” to coordinate with the organization’s commitment of giving back to their community. ConServe employees are given the opportunity to participate in monthly charitable donations, benefitting a wide-range of recipients, in exchange for having the option of dressing down and wearing jeans to work for the entire month. The funds raised by the employees’ generosity are supplemented by the organization’s Matching Gift Program - symbolizing ConServe’s commitment to good corporate citizenship. This ongoing initiative is just one of the ways in which ConServe supports varied and diverse community agencies. To date the program has donated over $870,227 to local community organizations.
