Top Performance – Top 20 Technicians Award Winners
Office of the Year Award – Birmingham Office

On Saturday, March 7, Satellites Unlimited gathered to celebrate the 2019 top performers at its 8th annual Oscars at the Renaissance Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa in Birmingham, Alabama. The evening has grown to be a cornerstone event to recognize the achievements, dedication and outstanding work of top performers from our 17 satellite offices. We celebrate teammates from all divisions of the company, and particularly our exceptional technicians, who are the indispensable life force of SUI. Their commitment to safety, our values, and being a Lead Dog is what makes this event possible. As we say in our motto, “If you are not the Lead Dog, the view never changes.”

Hosted again this year by our energetic emcee and Retail Sales Manager John Pamphilis, two new awards were introduced this year. The Rising Star Top Performance Award was created to recognize first-year employees whose professionalism and effort shined in their rookie year at SUI, and was awarded to James Skyles of Chattanooga with two runners-up. The new Samsung Top Performance Award was won by Scott Rooks of Mobile. As award presenter Alex Goebel, Director of Fulfillment Services, said, “When we were given the opportunity to partner with the biggest and most successful appliance company in the world—Samsung—we were truly put to the test to prove once and for all that we have the best and most versatile technician workforce in the nation. And as you look around the room, you can truly see that.”

The Grenada office took home the Team Safety Award, and the Birmingham office received the prestigious award for Office of the Year. The ceremony’s top honor of the Roddy L. McKinney Lead Dog Award was bestowed upon Casey Goodwin of the Jackson office.
