Meet the winners from Burnley in our first ever Amazing Awards!
The Burnley Engineering Team and Burnley-based bus driver Adrian Kenyon picked up prizes in our first Amazing Awards, which were held last week (Thursday 17 November 2016) at the National Media Museum in Bradford, West Yorkshire. The awards were hosted by Lancashire-born actor and comedy legend Dave Spikey, co-star of Channel Four's hit comedy series Phoenix Nights.
The winners of our prestigious Amazing Awards were nominated directly by their own colleagues, and selected from a shortlist of 34 of our finest teams and individuals, based at our bus depots throughout Yorkshire and Lancashire.
The Burnley Engineering Team won our 'A' Team award – for their incredible attention to detail and passion for their work. This team are the reason why our buses are always so immaculately presented, despite working along some of our busiest bus routes!
Burnley bus driver Adrian Kenyon was selected as our 'Eco Warrior' of the year. Adrian recorded extremely high marks for safe driving and his driving style, ensuring that emissions and fuel wastage are kept to a minimum.
Our CEO, Alex Hornby, presented the awards alongside Dave Spikey.
Alex said: “People like Adrian and the Burnley Engineering Team are at the very heart of what makes ours a successful business. Whether it's driving our customers safely to their destination, making sure our buses are safe and reliable, or providing great support behind the scenes, our fantastic people make this company the success it is.
“The high standards set by everyone on the shortlist made choosing the eight winners of our first Amazing Awards a challenging task, but an enjoyable one.
“At the heart of our company, we believe in three things - employing people who are happy to work for us, serving people who are proud to be our customers, and creating a business which is innovative and successful.
“Our core values, passion, performance, partnership and commitment shine through every one of our Amazing Awards winners. The Amazing Awards are about celebrating everything that's good about the people like Adrian and the Burnley Engineering Team, who deliver the highest standard of service for our customers, every day.”
