Glendale’s finest honoured with Chairman’s award

National green service provider Glendale has announced the winner of its annual Chairman’s Award for 2016.

The accolade went to Nick Darwell in recognition of his hard work and efforts throughout the year.

Nick has recently been promoted from the position of management accountant to senior tenders manager and has been with the organisation for the past nine years.

He has demonstrated a high level of commitment, competence and exceptional technical ability working on a challenging project in 2016, and played a pivotal role in achieving a successful conclusion.

Five nominees were also recognised from across the business: James Shipman, landscape supervisor, Mark McKinnon, company engineer, Sebastian Sanchez-Cabello, arborist, Wayne Hingston, grounds maintenance operative and Zach Allanson, contract supervisor.

Ericka Oates, finance director at Glendale, said: “The Chairman’s Award is a prestigious honour and an acknowledgement of an individual’s outstanding efforts. It is the culmination of a year of endeavour and represents the ultimate recognition from the Glendale board and our founder and chairman, Tony Hewitt.

“Nick has performed above and beyond the expectations of his role, and is an asset to the business.”

Nick comments: “I would’ve been hugely pleased just to be nominated, let alone win the award. It came as a complete surprise, but I’m very proud and grateful to those who recognised my efforts, as well as everyone who helped me with my work over the past 12 months, particularly those in the finance team.”

Glendale’s annual Chairman’s Award is one of several employee-focused initiatives organised by the company, including Glendale’s 30 under 30 and the Long Service Recognition Award which aim to recognise and celebrate the talent and achievements of employees across the organisation.
