Socket Sponsors the Countdown to Kickoff!


Socket was a proud sponsor of the 2016 Countdown to Kickoff fundraiser that took place on August 24. The fundraiser benefited Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Missouri. The evening was presented by Columbia Insurance Group and the University of Missouri Football Program and consisted of live and silent auctions, as well as remarks from Coach Barry Odom regarding the Tigers’ upcoming season.

As a sponsor for this year’s fundraiser, Socket was able to contribute to the proceeds raised for disadvantaged children in Mid-Missouri. Thanks to the silent and live auction as well as generous donations, a total of 110 children will be supported from an adult role model over the next year in the Big Brother Big Sister program.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Missouri serves children of single parent families, children with an incarcerated parent, children of active and fallen military, children in longer term foster care, and those who are referred by school or other agency personnel. Over 500 children are served yearly in our community.

Socket is proud to contribute to enhancing the lives of our community’s youth. If you would like to learn more about Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Missouri, visit www.bbbs.org to see how you can also make a difference!

Congratulations, Zaza Tugushi - You Make The Difference!



Congratulations to Zaza Tugushi, Service Delivery Manager, on winning the You-Make-The-Difference award for August!

Zaza joined the Socket team back in 2008, starting in customer service. From there, he moved to our business center as a service delivery coordinator, netting his first YMTD win back in October 2013. Today, he manages the entire service delivery team – and he’s still making the difference to his coworkers.

“Zaza more than exemplifies Socket’s core values and beliefs through his obvious dedication, professionalism, and clear-cut commitment to providing both the best possible service to Socket’s customers, and outstanding support of the staff he supervises,” said a coworker who nominated him. “It goes without saying that Zaza deserves this award.”

In his free time, Zaza enjoys working on various home improvement projects, as well as fixing cars and computers. However, he admits that most of his hobbies have been put on hold for the moment – he and his wife, Molly, stay busy taking care of their young son Lucca, as well as preparing for their second child, due this October!

“My favorite thing about working at Socket is definitely the people,” said Zaza. “Socketeers work together to make things happen for our customers. I like that even though we’ve become more structured and mature as we’ve grown, we’ve maintained the flexibility to go out of our way to help customers in need.”

Congratulations, Zaza!
