Chris Burgdoerfer Nominated for ROSE Award for Service Excellence

INDIANAPOLIS – Markey’s Rental & Staging is pleased to announce that Chris Burgdoerfer, Event Technician, has been nominated for a ROSE Award. The 19th annual ROSE Awards, presented by United Water, will take place Wednesday, March 10, at the Indiana Roof Ballroom.

ROSE is an acronym for Recognition Of Service Excellence. The Indianapolis Convention & Visitors Association coordinates the annual event to recognize employees and volunteers who positively influence a visitor’s experience in Indianapolis, either through one-on-one contact or behind-the-scene action.  These individuals help enhance the city’s reputation as a hospitable site for meetings, conventions, trade shows, group tours and leisure travel.

Managers nominate these honorees based on their courteous attitude, knowledge of the workplace and the city, ability to meet and exceed customer expectations and problem solving skills. They represent their companies and Indianapolis as true ambassadors of good will.

“Chris has worked at Markey’s since early 2000 and made and immediate impact on our company.   His warm personality and genuine interest in serving our customers at a consistently high level are two of his greatest assets.   Chris began his career in an entry level position and quickly advanced to one of our most talented event technicians--particularly in the area of live video production services for major conventions, special events and keynote presenters. All of us at Markey’s are proud of his accomplishments and value his leadership in the work place,” stated Mark Miller, President of Markey’s Rental & Staging.

A panel of community leaders will serve as judges to select ROSE Award recipients for lifetime achievement and exceptional service during 2009.  More than 70 individuals will be honored at the gala event. 

Mayor Greg Ballard is scheduled to present the awards at this year’s 19th annual ROSE Awards presented by United Water.
