HLW New Jersey Jumps into Summer with Two Impressive Accolades

The Madison based office has been named one of NJ Biz’s Best Places to Work and Managing Director, Kim Sacramone has been named as a new board member of the United Way of Northern New Jersey.

With over 130 years of dedicated service as an architecture and design firm, HLW has much to celebrate.

HLW’s New Jersey office celebrated being named to NJ Biz’s Best Places to Work at a gala held in Freehold. This award program recognizes New Jersey’s most dynamic businesses who share a commitment to professional excellence, business growth, and the community.

“It is an honor to be recognized for our teams dedicated work throughout New Jersey! Great design and strategy is of great importance, but it is our team’s commitment to a healthy work environment and culture that has allowed for us to be included in this list of esteemed New Jersey businesses,” says Kim Sacarmone, Principal, Managing Director of HLW New Jersey.

2019 is gearing up to be one of the New Jersey office’s biggest years as the team is also honored to announce that Kim Sacramone has been named as a new board member of the United Way of Northern New Jersey. In her 25-year career, Sacramone has played a key role in shaping the culture and business direction of the firm’s New York City headquarters and New Jersey interior architecture practice. In 2014 Kimberly spearheaded HLW’s Madison New Jersey office opening. Along with her new role as board member, Sacramone has also been involved with United Way as a member of the United Way Commercial Real Estate Network Steering Committee where she helps plan an annual luncheon that recognizes the commercial real estate industry.

Throughout its five-county footprint, United Way is working to improve the lives of families and individuals who are ALICE® (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) or in poverty. United Way research shows that 38.5 percent of New Jersey households are in poverty or are ALICE — living paycheck to paycheck, unable to afford necessities.
