Irwin Tools has announced the winner of the 2015 National Tradesmen Day competition. Stacey Greenwell from Stoke-on-Trent impressed the expert judging panel with his dedication to the community.
He was nominated for his commitment to rejuvenating what would be derelict areas of town, in order to provide homes and jobs for those in need. He was one of hundreds of nationwide nominations and beat five other finalists to be crowned 2015 Ultimate Tradesman. As this year’s winner, Stacey will drive home a brand new Ford F150 4×4 truck worth over £35,000.
Michael Potter, Associate Brand Activation Manager, Irwin Tools EMEA, commented “The competition for this year’s National Tradesmen Day was fierce but the judging panel felt that Stacey’s positive impact on the community and his drive to go above and beyond his daily role, really made him stand out. Our society relies heavily on the good work of tradesmen and women but their efforts are sometimes overlooked. National Tradesmen Day aims to raise the profile of these people working behind the scenes and Stacey was very deserving of the title this year.”
Winning tradesman, Stacey Greenwell, commented: “I’m so thrilled to win the National Tradesmen Day competition. It feels good to know the work I do is appreciated and this award is a testament to the great team of individuals I work alongside. I never win anything and I know my family will be really proud.”
