Marvin Heinze of Coronado was recognized as the United States Pacific Fleet 2017 Federal Leader, Supervisor, and Manager of the Year on Friday May 5, 2017 at the 61st Annual Excellence in Federal Government Awards Program ceremony at the Hickam Officer’s Club on Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Honolulu, HI.
Heinze works in San Diego for the Naval Surface and Mine Warfighting Development Center (SMWDC). At SMWDC, he serves as the Deputy for Mine Warfare Operations and Plans, helping protect our nation’s ports and harbors from sea mines and undersea explosive devices. Heinze, a retired Navy Captain, is currently Chairman of the City of Coronado Planning Commission. He and his wife Jill live in Coronado Cays.
The ceremony was sponsored by the Honolulu-Pacific Federal Executive Board (HPFEB) and recognized top performers for their outstanding performance in multiple categories. Service members and federal employees from over 20 organizations throughout Hawaii and the Pacific were considered. Awards were presented for seven categories to include federal employees of the year in professional, administrative and technical, clerical or assistant; and some were recognized for their excellence in community service.
“This event allows time for leaders to celebrate taking care of their people, mentoring and guiding them, and most important, taking the time to acknowledge their achievement,” said Christopher Conklin, executive director for HPFEB.
The annual Excellence in Federal Government Awards Program is one of the HPFEB’s most attended events of the year. The program recognizes outstanding federal employees for their efforts, leadership and initiative. The program encourages innovation and excellence in government, reinforces pride in federal service and helps call public attention to the broad range of services provided by federal employees.
