Each year, RefrigiWear recognizes the outstanding men and women who work in our industry by holding their “International Warehouseman of the Year” Awards.  We have been very fortunate to be well represented by some of our talented team members over the years such as Gil Ayon (2012 winner) from Elkton and Issac Alamo (2013 winner) from Rocky Hill.  This year, we are well represented once again!

Vicky Alexander, a checker from Burris Elkton, has been announced as one of the 24 winners of 2014!

Don Byerly from RefrigiWear shares, “We had almost 300 nominations this year.  We select 24 winners, based on performance. These nominations are “the best of the best”, so it is a challenge. However, the exceptional performers do usually shine through.”

Below is the letter of recommendation submitted by Vicky’s team:

We would like to nominate Victoria Alexander of our Elkton AM Shipping Department, for the RefrigiWear Warehouseman of the Year award. Vicky is a lead checker for our Quality Control Team at Burris.

As a leader, Vicky meets with her staff of checkers at the start of shift and asks for their input on how they will meet productivity goals and objectives for the day. Whenever there are special projects that need to be addressed and handled, Vicky is the first person to volunteer. She has excellent communication skills and enjoys working with all of our teams within the warehouse.
With regard to her productivity, Vicky and her team have checked 17,142,195 cases so far this year and they have excelled at a 99.97% quality standard.

Vicky is extremely resourceful, and whether she is checking cases or observing dock flow, Vicky will inform all warehouse management of any potential roadblocks that may impact the productivity for the day. Also, our auditors rely heavily on Vicky for her in-depth knowledge. She is extremely versatile with all of our commodities in the warehouse and is also a great trainer to all of our new team members.

For all of the reasons listed above, please consider her for the award.

Thank you,
Elkton Burris Logistics Shipping Team

Don also went on to say, “It is one if my favorite things, every year, to read the success stories of what I believe to be our country’s greatest resource….The American Worker.”  We couldn’t agree more Don!

Congratulations to Vicky and thank you to RefrigiWear!
