Reliance received special recognition from the Durham Region Home Builders’ Association (DRHBA) at its recent Awards of Excellence event on April 26th in Oshawa. Reliance’s Jennifer Hurd was also recognized as Outstanding Tradesperson of the Year.
“The Awards of Excellence is the pinnacle event of the year, honouring our most creative and talented builders, renovators, designers and marketers in the new home building industry,” said Donna Donaldson, Executive Officer of DRHBA of the event. ”This is our opportunity to recognize the outstanding achievement of our member companies here in Durham Region.”
Reliance received the Award of Excellence for Supplier of the Year for the second consecutive year and Key Account Manager Jennifer Hurd received the Outstanding Tradesperson of the Year award.
The Supplier of the Year award is presented to a supplier or manufacturer for their outgoing corporate commitment to supporting channel partners. Key performance factors such as quality, delivery, reliability, integrity, continuous improvement, price and customer relations are evaluated. The Outstanding Tradesperson of the Year award is presented to a member for outstanding corporate and/or individual attitude, cooperation and service to associates and the industry as a whole. Consistency in quality, craftsmanship and competence are all hallmarks of award-winning trades.
“Building relationships with the new home builder industry through participation in the home builder associations and by providing best-of-class service is a key strength for Reliance. It is through the resources Reliance puts towards this key market and the work of our Key Account Managers that we continue to be recognized in the industry. This award recognizes Reliance, but also recognizes the added value and quality our Key Account Managers like Jennifer Hurd bring to the associations and industry,” says Amandio Contreiras, Director, UEI Finance, Builder, Commercial & Dealer Programs.
