On Monday the 4th February, not only was the exceptional service of the company recognised, Tony Grimshaw was also crowned Kitchen Hero in the Awards ceremony.
Tony Grimshaw, O.B.E, Director at What More UK said:
“The service that What More UK provide is legendary on a global scale. This is across all our departments and I am incredibly proud of the recognition we have received by our peers. It was an honour to receive the Best Supplier Service Award, I want to congratulate every individual within What More UK for being part of this success, without a team there are no goals scored.”
Categories at the awards reflect the vibrant nature of the industry. The Housewares Innovation Awards give outstanding retailers and exceptional individuals a platform to shine, with the best in the industry in attendance on the night.
“I am still in shock from receiving my lifetime achievement award. It’s wonderful to be recognised for the work and passion I put into What More UK, however I have to say my role is not possible without every other individual within our team. I am really grateful for the award, for the exceptional support from my colleagues over the years and the continued great relationships we have within the industry, both nationally and globally.”
The Kitchen Hero, sponsored by Home Hardware, was the last award to be announced.
