President and CEO
Location: West Orange, NJ
PEF Services LLC is a firm believer in providing a fun atmosphere at the office. Fun, says Anne Anquillare, encourages successful work habits. Employees enjoy ice cream days during the summer, bagels on Tuesdays, monthly pretzels and casual Fridays. The office pingpong table has been the site of much bonding and de-stressing, and PEF offers a range of learning opportunities and resources for continuous education. Outside the office, PEF employees donate time and effort to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. The PEF team helps out by sorting clothing, repacking food and assembling backpack care packages to be distributed to families in need. Another important aspect of PEF’s culture is its focus on diversity. The company has worked to build a staff that is comprised of more than 50 percent females, and 20 percent minorities.
“With an open-door leadership approach, upward mobility opportunities, regular firm-wide training and mentoring, and cash bonuses for ‘bright ideas,’ personal and professional development are encouraged.”
