Despite being shortlisted for Initiative of the Year for its Transport Management System, it was six team members from VOW that shone this year.
The award for Professional of the Year went to VOW Marketing Director, Helen Wade who was recognised for a year of outstanding success. Helen has overseen the strategic rebranding of the company as a specialist wholesaler and has repositioned the Green Light event. In addition, she had driven the Whiteout and Heatwave incentive schemes and driven a complete overhaul of the MyMarketing Platform.
It’s also been quite a year for VOW Product Marketing Manager, Scott Castle who won the BOSS Emerging Professional of the Year Award. Scott was commended by the judges for his work in developing the VOW AdVenture incentive campaign and recognised for his role in supporting the establishment of the BOSS Leaders of the Future group, of which he will shortly be taking over the Chair from Emily Jones.
Steve Blowers, Director of Dealer Groups was recognised by the BOSS Federation with an Unsung Hero Award along with three other team members.
Matthew Allen was singled out for his great contribution to the VOW Commercial Team. Rebecca Brook, VOW Head of Inventory was recognised for the excellent work that she has done in managing a team of 17 people, with responsibility for controlling the ordering and intake of goods from suppliers and sustaining a high level of customer fill rate and availability.
Sarah Whale, VOW Service Improvement Manager was awarded her Unsung Hero Award for her work in the implementation of VOWs Customer Self-Service Portal and her obsession with putting her customers first.
Helen Wade, Marketing Director said, “it was an incredible night and amazing to see so many of the VOW team being recognised. For me personally it was a great thrill to win and I felt proud and humbled to go up and collect my award. It may sound like a cliché, but it is true, that there are lots of people whose support contributes to this, and I want to thank all of them. I also want to offer massive congratulations to Scott, Steve, Matthew, Rebecca and Sarah for their awards. We’ve put a huge focus on our supply chain relationships and these awards clearly show that our approach is delivering results.”
