What was your first thought when you were announced as the winner?
Totally surprised and shocked. My eyes tricked me as I was expecting Matt Phillips to be announced so when Jani called my name, my eyes read Matt on the screen!
Did you have a ‘thank you’ speech prepared?
Not at all, I thought Matt was going to win so I was prepared to say a few words on his behalf as he was my nomination.
What does it mean to you to be awarded Employee of the Month?
It means a great deal just to be nominated and knowing that others have voted for me also reminds me why I enjoy the job I’m doing.
Are you going to treat yourself with the ‘prize’ money?
Yes, of course. Recently I’ve had a high repair bill on my car so this should go towards it but then again a nice meal out with the wife at the weekend is more important. Perhaps buy a gift each for the 5 grandchildren!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
As much as I appreciate being nominated and voted for Employee of the Month, at the end of the day I’m just doing my job with a great team around me. Without their commitment and support my working life would be a lot more difficult to work away from home than it actually is.
Congratulations again to Mark for his win, and well done to all the other nominees for February's Employee of the Month!
