Cheryl Crumbley, Senior Vice President, Magnolia State Bank

“Cogentes is more than a local IT support company…when you pull up their website, unlike most companies, their company culture begins with Community Involvement. They encourage employees to participate in the community through leadership, stewardship, and volunteering.

Cogentes is the first business in our community that successfully had 100% employee participation in healthy lifestyles by logging over 1,500 miles cycling to/from work, during lunches, and on weekends.

Not only does Cogentes support improving our schools, employees also sit on boards of various community entities such as Chamber of Commerce, Oconee River Greenway Foundation, Bicycling Club, GCSU IT Advisory, MBC Strategic Planning Steering Committee, Live Healthy Baldwin, and Partners for Progress.

Cogentes supports local events through monetary donations and their employees also give of their time and efforts for such causes as Deep Roots Festival, Café Central, Georgia Cancer Support, Community Garden Association, Rotary Club, Boy Scouts of America, and Camp Twin Lakes.”
