Employee Spotlight: Bob McIlvain Presented "Award of Excellence"

Bob McIlvain Presented "Award of Excellence"

Here at DesignShop, we strive to not only design and build the most high-quality trade show exhibits possible, but to create and cultivate a workspace and company culture that exudes excellence.  In fact, we're past recipients of Florida Trend's "Florida's Top 100 Companies to Work For".  That says something not only about the environment here but our Team members as well....Each year, DesignShop presents one of our employees with the "Award of Excellence" - based upon the past year's performance and the qualities that embody "Excellence". This is an award that means a lot to us internally and is highly coveted within our culture.

The "Award of Excellence" for 2014 was presented to Bob McIlvain, recognizing him as the stand-out for all of last year.

Each year, the winner of the “Award of Excellence” receives an all-expenses-paid weekend for two at the 5-Star “La Playa Hotel” on the beach in Naples, Florida. However, about 2 months ago Bob approached DesignShop CEO, Doug Hughes, with something a little different...he wanted to know if he could share his “Award of Excellence” with his Teammates in Operations; he wanted to know if he could take them all deep sea fishing rather than him go to Naples. He simply stated that he can’t do his job every day without the excellent support he gets from his Teammates that he works alongside….Wow!!!

Doug stated, "in my 16 years at DesignShop, I’ve never seen a more genuine demonstration of Teamwork than what Bob is doing for his Teammates….and it certainly shouldn’t be any surprise that someone with Bob’s commitment to daily excellence was the recipient of last year’s “Award of Excellence”!  And, boy….he has now raised the bar on future winners of this prestigious company award!!!".

So, again, Congratulations Bob…your leadership, generosity, and daily commitment to Excellence is an inspiration for all of us!

And please note that the Operations Team did take that deep sea fishing trip and brought home the BIG ones….courtesy of Bob!

Thank Bob, from all of us!!

DesignShop...we're YOUR Team
