Geze UK serves up awards success at IAI AGM
Employees at the UK’s leading manufacturer of door and window control systems have won a hat trick of the industry’s most prestigious awards, at the Institute of Architectural Ironmongers’ (IAI) Annual General Meeting in Derby.
Three GEZE UK employees scooped awards that recognised their contribution to the industry and dedication to customer service.
Sales co-ordinator Cheryl Baker won the Paul Lewis Award for Customer Service, after receiving the most independent nominations from customers. Sponsored by Royde and Tucker, the award is given in honour of Paul Lewis, who was always passionate about customer service and dedicated to the industry. Royde and Tucker’s managing director John Sims presented Cheryl with the award, saying that Paul would have been happy to see it presented to such a deserving recipient.
Chosen by the IAI Executive Committee for his tireless work for the Institute, GEZE UK’s area sales manager Shaun Brown was presented with the IAI Fellowship, in recognition of the significant contribution he has made to the architectural ironmongery industry.
Sales director Andy Howland received The Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) Award for Services to the Institute of Architectural Ironmongery, following a vote by the nine IAI branches in the UK. As Chairman of the Institute, Andy showed strong leadership during a period of significant change, and this newly created award was presented to Andy for his outstanding contribution to the Institute over a sustained period of time.
GEZE UK’s managing director Andrew Hall said: “One of the main reasons that GEZE UK has enjoyed such sustained success in this competitive industry, is our commitment to first class customer service. We’re very proud that Cheryl, Shaun and Andy have received this recognition from their customers and peers within the industry – it means a great deal to them and to all of us at GEZE UK.”
