John Kiel wins the Clugston Chairman's Award

07 September 2017

For the first time in Clugston’s 80-year history, a member of the FM team has won the prestigious Chairman’s ‘Employee of the Year’ award.

John Kiel has worked in Clugston’s FM Team for 3 years at the Vivergofuels Ltd plant near Hull as a general site operative / supervisor.

He is extremely hard working, conscientious and motivated with a huge desire to prove to everyone he is the best at what he does.

His mind-set is always focused on delivering the best possible service and he is respected by Clugston and Vivergofuels staff alike.

On receiving his award, John humbly said ‘I just come to work and do my job…I’m no different from anyone else in our team!’

A delighted George Nelson, Head of FM added ‘John is a great team player and he encourages team camaraderie by regularly organising team events and encouraging the team to celebrate their successes and maintain closely aligned relationships.

'Whilst in Cuba in 2016 for his daughter’s wedding, he kept in touch with the site to ensure things were running okay in his absence.

'He even took the bridal party onto the beach to have their picture taken in a front end loader because it reminded him of his work!

'This typifies John’s approach to helping Clugston deliver the best customer service and he makes it his responsibility to help at every opportunity because failure for him and Clugston is not an option.

'John’s background is heavy industrial cleaning and when the FM team were asked to help Clugston’s Construction team by cleaning some leaking tanks with awkward access, John single handily organised and the completed the clean as required.

'This solidifies his ability to go above and beyond his normal job expectations.

'Clugston secured a contract renewal with Vivergofuels and whilst this demonstrates the trust and confidence Vivergofuels have in Clugston, however, it is with staff like John Kiel that give Clugston the reputation it has.'

John is pictured receiving his award with John Clugston, Chairman of Clugston Group.
