Technical Trades Manager Kev Wallis has been shortlisted as Employee of the Year, thanks to a lifetime of hard work, loyalty, and a commitment to perfection.
“Our business would be very different today had we not had Kev,” Mike said, “He has been fundamental to the growth and continued development of our business, our colleagues, and our customers for many many years, and we are all fortunate that there is only one Kev and I’m very grateful that we have him.”
Starglaze was shortlisted in the Innovation Award category thanks to its investment in a new virtual showroom, which includes elements such as CGI videos, 360º product walkthroughs, sales videos, and a friendly online tour.
