Late November Kennards Hire held its 2015 Supplier Award Night, an event that allowed the entire Kennards Hire team to say thanks and reward their suppliers for the hard work and commitment they have shown throughout the year.
The Award Night was held at Kennards Hire Artarmon NSW branch, which was turned into a fine dining restaurant especially for the occasion.
Some 130 suppliers were in attendance, many travelling across Australia for the event. Also in attendance were key members of the Kennards Hire family including Angus Kennard, Rory Kennard, Cam Kennard, and Andy Kennard.
Over the course of the night, Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards were presented to the highest rated suppliers based on a survey that was completed by Kennards Hire Staff from more than 150 branches across Australia and New Zealand.
There were six different categories of awards, four of which align with Kennards Hire’s core values; Fair Dinkum, Every Customer A Raving Fan, Taking Hire Higher, and One Family. There were two other awards for Customer Service and Supplier Of The Year.
Recently appointed Kennards Hire CEO Liz Ward couldn’t be happier with the night and the recipients of the evening’s awards.
“We owe a great deal of gratitude to every single person who attended the event,” said Ms Ward. “Kennards Hire wouldn’t be the successful brand that it is today without the support and loyalty of all of our suppliers,some of which Kennards Hire have been partnering with for up to 50 years.”
