A hands-on, people-first approach and a relationship-driven process from beginning to end; customized solutions and personalized service based on a company’s unique culture, values, workforce profiles, and solution needs.
Global supply chain, unique understanding of the healthcare and hospitality industries, as well as other industries in which “people are on their feet” — construction, retail, delivery and transportation.
Security and Stability
A privately held company on a steady course of innovation and growth; a hybrid in our space — not rooted in or bound by either the manufacturing or technological side of the business.

HALO Recognition, originally founded in 1935 in New York City as Michael C. Fina by the Fina family’s namesake, began as a luxury retailer specializing in fine silver merchandise on Fifth Avenue. As the business expanded to include jewelry and unique gifts, so did the personal relationships we developed with our customers. Soon neighboring businesses began to rely on our retail expertise and personal service to help them select corporate service awards for their employees.
In 1965 we signed our first service award contract and in 1970 we opened a facility solely dedicated to supporting reward and recognition programs, the Corporate Sales division. Over the next forty five years, we became Michael C. Fina Recognition, a leader in the recognition industry with our time-tested honesty, compassion, and personal service to every partnership.
In 2017 Michael C. Fina Recognition was acquired by HALO Branded Solutions, a leading national promotional products distributor , creating HALO Recognition, the most comprehensive employee recognition provider in the market. Today HALO Recognition helps companies of all sizes worldwide reward, recognize, and inspire their employees to do great things with scalable recognition and incentive programs designed for modern workforces. With a passion and enthusiasm for personal service, we celebrate your success, one memorable experience at a time.
