Hammons, a Winnfield, Louisiana native, worked in project management for various national companies before joining the Monroe-headquartered firm in 2004.
“I enjoy being a part of a company that gives their employees the opportunity to grow professionally and promotes a family oriented environment,” said Hammons.
Faulk & Foster was founded in 1945 and functioned primarily as a traditional real estate firm until 1985, when owner John Perry Jr. began acquiring cellular tower sites for national carriers. The company, which also has commercial and residential real estate divisions, also has a permanent office in Grand Rapids, Michigan, in addition to 19 field project offices throughout the U.S. The firm employs about 60 company workers, and contracts with as many as 50 more.
The company’s president’s award is named for the late Chris Bowman, who helped Perry create the telecommunications division. Bowman died in 2005 after a long battle with cancer.
“The Chris Bowman President’s Award is very close to my heart,” Perry said. “Chris exemplified true teamwork by actions, attitude, task mastering and unreserved dedication to Faulk & Foster and clients while demonstrating the pursuit of excellence. Alissa was selected this year because she exemplifies all of the traits that make up the Chris Bowman President’s Award: trustworthiness; a sense of urgency; drive and commitment; unquestionable moral character; a good listener; and the ability to interpret what is said.”
“When I joined Faulk & Foster, I had the opportunity to meet Chris Bowman and his family, and saw what an inspiration he was to the company and every employee,” said Hammons. “It is an honor to be among the recipients of this award as we are all focused on demonstrating excellence to our clients and community.”
