Obam’s Simon Shortlisted for Industry Award

Obam’s Simon Shortlisted for Industry Award

A logistics coordinator for Lincolnshire-based mobility company Obam Stairlifts is hoping he’ll be crowned Unsung Hero of the Year at the very first Access and Mobility Professional Awards.

Simon Wright from North Hykeham has been working for the firm, which helps people live more independently, since April this year.

He took up the newly established role shortly after relocating to Lincolnshire from Kent and has eight years of experience in planning and logistics.

Access and Mobility Professional is the UK trade title and news service for dealers, distributors and installers of wheelchairs, living aids, ramps, lifts, adapted furniture and transportation.

Its awards will celebrate the achievements of retailers and dealers in the UK mobility industry and is the first time that dedicated awards of this kind have been held.

They recognise the importance of impeccable customer service, innovative thinking and business success.

Simon has been nominated for an Unsung Hero of the Year award for being vital to Obam Stairlifts’ business development, helping the company to adopt a more strategic approach to its planning.

In his new role he has been looking at where the company can make the best use of its engineers’ time, while still delivering a high standard of care to its customers.

Simon’s experience and ability will continue to provide essential input to the business and help to increase its local market share.

He said: “I have to admit I was quite surprised, but very flattered, to find out that I had been put forward for an award.

“It was a hard decision to uproot from Kent and move to Lincoln, but I am confident it was the right one.

“I’m pleased I am making a good impression at Obam by improving the company while helping to make our customers’ lives better. Fingers crossed for the awards ceremony.”

Simon’s award nomination is another 2018 highlight for Obam Stairlifts, as the firm has been busy expanding not only its team but also its showroom and office space.

This summer the company also launched its new-look website obam.co.uk

Winners of the Access and Mobility Professional Awards will be decided entirely by fellow industry professionals via: www.accessandmobilityprofessional.com/online-voting-decide-winners-2018-amp-awards-now-open
