The Customer Service award goes to Kathy Rush for her dedication to providing quality service and customer satisfaction to Arett customers, suppliers, and fellow Arett team members. This award recognizes Kathy as a person who has “gone the extra mile” in a consistent and substantial way. “Kathy is always willing to offer a helping hand within all departments. She is not afraid to learn new things and without asking, she is always the first to volunteer to assist. Most of all, she always brings a smile to everyone’s face and is a pleasure to work with” – states Paula Colon, Arett Sales Product Merchant.
2021 Arett Sales Creativity Award – Michelle Kennedy
The Creativity award goes to Michelle Kennedy. This award recognizes someone who has created or innovated concepts to make our job more efficient and effective. In addition, these ideas save money and/or time and result in improved workflow, increasing overall employee performance, and staff development, or lead Arett Sales in a new productive direction. Michelle’s ideas and execution streamlined the process for our manufacturer partners entering their Show contracts. “This year, there was plenty of creativity going on and it was a little more difficult to keep in touch with all of us working remotely. Michele has brought a new perspective to the merchanting team. She is always looking for new ways to improve and streamline our processes. I can always count on Michelle’s fresh take and new ideas and her willingness to take on challenges. This is a well-deserved recognition” – states Adam Chesbrough – V.P. of Marketing.
