Buckingham joinsJ Barrett & Company

J Barrett & Company recently announced that Realtor Beth Buckingham has joined the firm in its Gloucester office.

With more than 18 years experience in real estate, Buckingham has earned an enviable success record and a reputation for being responsive to clients’ needs as well as exceeding their expectations.

“I am committed to helping my clients achieve their goals,” said Buckingham in a statement. “Part of that commitment means paying careful attention to every detail throughout the entire process.”

Before starting her career in real estate, Buckingham graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics from the College of the Holy Cross and held marketing positions with Independent Media in Los Angeles and Erisco in New York City.

“We are fortunate to have a Realtor with Beth’s experience and ability on our team,” said Jon B. Gray, president, in a statement. “Her clients will also benefit greatly from her dedication and know-how.”

The Gloucester resident is a member of the National Association of Realtors and the Massachusetts Association of Realtors.

NeedyMeds named great place to work

NeedyMeds, a Gloucester-based nonprofit organization, was selected by The NonProfit Times as one of the best nonprofits to work for in 2013. Only 50 nonprofits in the U.S. earned this honor.

“We are so excited to have been designated in the top 50,” said Richard J. Sagall, MD, president of NeedyMeds, in a statement. “Everyone at NeedyMeds deserves a big ‘pat on the back’ for contributing to our success as a great place to work.”

The award is based on a survey conducted by the Best Companies Group that covered benefits and employment practices. In addition, employees were given an extensive confidential survey covering eight areas of work life.

“Organizations that make the list have been successful in creating unique cultures where employees love to come to work,” said Peter Burke, BCG president, in a statement. “The leaders of the winning organizations understand their cultural values and they live their cultural values.”
