Daren Ford is named Excelsior Employee of the Year

Our annual employee awards night A Night with the Stars took place last Saturday night at the Grand Harbour Hotel in Southampton. Hosted by Managing Director, Andrew Wickham, and Wave 105 DJ, Rick Jackson, we celebrated all of our colleagues who have achieved long service with us in 2016, those who retired last year and all of our employees of the month.

We are extremely pleased to announce that the Excelsior Employee of the Year is Daren Ford.

Daren joined Exclesior in late 2016 just after it was acquired by the Go-Ahead Group. Excelsior's vision is to be the executive coach private hire operator of choice providing exemplery customer service, and it is clear that Daren fits in perfectly with that vision.

An experienced coach driver, we are frequently told by his customers that Daren is friendly, helpful and a decent all-rounder. Described by our general manager, Adam, as a bold example to all other coach drivers. Daren was nominated for the quarterly Excelsior Excellence award for providing a smooth journey to our prestigious clients on a tight itinerary. The client noted what a fantastic ambassador and great company Daren was.

In recognition of his efforts, Daren received £500 worth of vouchers and a framed certificate.

Have you had excellent customer service? Or know of an Excelsior employee who has gone the extra mile? You can nominate them for Excelsior Excellence here.

Each quarter an employee is chosen out of those nominated, the winner receives £50 worth of shopping vouchers, and an invite to the awards night A Night with the Stars.
