Clean staff sweep up at awards

Staff from a Cheltenham branch of a nation-wide linen and laundry business have walked away with national awards.

Emma Knight, a site support manager at CLEAN Cheltenham and van driver Victor Wainwright, also based at the Hatherley Road laundry, were honoured at the company's first ever Employee of the Year Awards.

The pair make up two of nine members of staff out of 1,450 employees working across CLEAN's eight UK sites recognised in the inaugural competition.

Winners were rewarded with a framed certificate and a £100 Amazon voucher.

Ms Knight, who was promoted to site support manager from her previous post as site administrator last year, was praised for taking the new challenges and responsibilities in her stride.

"I am very proud that of all the amazing people I work with, they have chosen me to get Employee of the Year. I have progressed from a customer service adviser to site administrator and then to site support manager," she said.

Jason Miller, the company's CEO, said: "Cheltenham has the most complex customer service mix of any of the laundry sites and Emma manages and controls the customer service at the site excellently. She is extremely dedicated and embodies the vision, mission and values of CLEAN."

Mr Wainwright, who delivers workwear from the CLEAN laundry in Cheltenham to London, won the Driver of the Year award, beating all drivers from across the company's eight UK locations to the title.

"It is very unexpected. I feel proud to have been chosen from all the drivers within the company, as I am sure the competition was very strong," said Mr Wainwright.

Victor was presented with his award by the company's Group Transport Manager, Tim Bright, Customer Operations Manager, Nigel Butterworth and Cheltenham Site Director, Andy Coulthard.
