From benefits and off-sites to onboarding, Uniland leadership applauds the positive impact Ms. Nicosia is having at the company:

“Amy is doing an amazing job in supporting our associates and helping our newest team members see how they have a key role in our company,” says Uniland CEO Michael J. Montante. “From our Town Halls to our Wellness Studio, Amy is supporting Uniland’s growth into our 50th year.”

Evans. “She is a leader of both her core team and within our whole organization.”
