The award recognizes individuals for that have gone above and beyond the call of duty (Sodexo superstars).

“Brian is the epitome of a great Sodexo employee,” said Joyce Schoenig, retail manager for Rensselaer Union Dining. “He is committed to his job, and he is always thinking of ways to improve his department, going the distance for his career. Brian is also an employee of great action and just a few well-placed words, and his contributions can be seen and enjoyed by the hundreds of students he provides with amazing customer service weekly. We are so proud of him for winning this award, because he is so deserving of this honor.”

Beyond work, Polak says that he enjoys spending his time with his family and four children, who range in age from 18 years to just 1 month old, in addition to working on home-improvement projects.
