Our History

HALO Recognition was originally founded in 1935 in Manhattan, New York City as a luxury retailer specializing in silver, where we became known for our custom orders and personal service. In 1965 we signed our first service award contract and in 1970 we opened a facility solely dedicated to supporting reward and recognition programs. As the recognition industry grew we expanded to support our clients the way they needed without losing our customer-centric approach. We are still led by Jeffrey and Michael Fina and our longtime management team that has supported our growth throughout our expansion, and our custom solutions and personal service are still the hallmarks of our business. Today HALO Recognition is the leading provider of recognition, reward and incentive solutions built from a passion and enthusiasm for serving our clients.
