Two members of staff at Chandlers Building Supplies have been presented with top awards plus £500 each at the merchant’s annual conference.

The Best New Starter Award was presented to Georgia Tidey (pictured right) from its Thanet branch and the Outstanding Contribution Award was presented to Nick Fennell, a Sales Team Manager at its head office branch in RIngmer, East Sussex.

Tidey joined the team at the Ocivan Way branch of Chandlers just over a year ago. She was nominated for her exceptional ‘can do attitude’ that delights customers and made her a valued member of the team.

Fennell was nominated for his exceptional commitment to the company throughout this 12 years in the business, as well as his positive approach to taking on extra work when needed.

Managing Director Andrew Cope (pictured left) said: “Both team members have demonstrated all the key attributes required to win these awards.

“These include contributions that exceed expectation, willingness and ability to deliver strong results and strong team players. Congratulations to Georgia and Nick - we are delighted to have you as part of the Chandlers Buildings Supplies family.”
