Charles J. Markey, Jr. Recognized with Hoosier Hospitality Award

On Friday August 15, Charles J. Markey, Jr., CEO of Markey’s Rental & Staging, was honored with a Hoosier Hospitality Award at a ceremony at the Indiana State Fairgrounds by Lt. Governor Sue Ellspermann and the Indiana Office of Tourism Development (IOTD).  The awards recognize representatives of the tourism industry for their high level of service in tourism-related jobs at hotels, restaurants, attractions and other destinations.  


Upon receiving this award, Markey said, “This is indeed a great honor for myself, my family and Markey’s. I accept this award first and foremost for our founder and my mother. She taught me more about customer service (Hoosier Hospitality) than I can remember. But the best lesson she taught me was that no matter how small a rental may seem, always make that customer feel like a million-dollar customer – because someday they may be.

I also accept this award on behalf of all Markey’s employees past, present and future who have upheld the tenants of customer service over the past 50+ years.”
