Steve Vaughan Named As UK Warehousing Association Manager Of The Year.

We are delighted to announce that our Halifax Warehouse Manager Steve Vaughan has been awarded the title of National Warehouse Manager Of The Year 2013

The warehousing industry’s finest gathered for the UKWA awards ceremony at the Dorchester Hotel, London on 3 July, an annual event which recognises the cream of the logistics world.

The winners were chosen by the UKWA Awards Committee and within this particular category, judges were looking for an individual with excellent personal and professional qualities in addition to a real and financial contribution to the operation which they managed.

Operations Director Neil Rushworth commented on the award:

“I am so happy that the judges recognised the calibre of manager which Steve is and the progress which he has led on our Halifax site.

Steve has been instrumental in all the changes which have taken place on the site and he is structured and determined in his approach. What he says will happen always does which gives me personally complete confidence in the running of the facility.

He is a credit to Expect Distribution”

Steve, who has been employed by Expect since June 2011 passed comment himself upon the accolade

“I am immensely honoured to accept this award in my role as Warehouse Manager for Expect Distribution, Halifax.

This award would not have been possible without the support of the Directors, the management team and all other staff associated with the warehousing division.

Receiving this award does not mean its job done. Managers within warehousing will continue to implement improvements that will ensure we continue to move forward and grow with the business. As we do move forward hopefully more managers in the business will receive similar recognition for themselves and their teams.

At this moment in time I feel on top of the world and ready to face the next challenges and continue to develop my team and site.

Thank you to all my colleagues for continuing to adopt change and for continuing to support the goals of the business. “

Expect were strongly represented at the awards ceremony and our Low Moor Manager

out on the title.
