Cherie Speer and Darein Gandall

Pictured: Cisco-Eagle President Darein Gandall presents the 2014-2015 ESOP Employee Owner of the Year Award to Cherie Speer.

Cherie Speer of our Tulsa, Oklahoma office is the 2014-2015 Cisco-Eagle ESOP Employee-Owner of the Year, an annual award presented by our ESOP (employee ownership) Advisory Committee.

The award recognizes an employee-owner who has gone beyond what is expected to promote and support ownership culture. Cisco-Eagle believes that empowered, fully-invested employees who own a stake in their company is the best business approach. It allows us to provide superior customer service and engagement. This award is not selected by senior management — it is awarded directly by a committee of employees based on a nomination process that includes all employees. It is an award to one employee from his or her peers.

March 11, 2008

ESOP association award presentation

It’s a point of pride for me that we’re an employee-owned company. We have been since 2000, and almost everyone who works here is a shareholder.

So it was a pleasure to hear that we’d won the ESOP Association’s Southwest Chapter 2008 ESOP Company of the Year award. On March 7, Cisco-Eagle’s ESOP committee members were presented this award at the association’s Spring Conference & Awards Dinner. Present were our ESOP Advisory Committee Chairman Randall Chamberlain, along with members Anne Miller and William Ellwood. With this award, we’ve been nominated for National ESOP Association company of the year.

Cisco-Eagle safety white paper recognized by Material Handling Industy of America

October 23, 2007

cover of safety brochureThis is an honor that I’m pleased with because one of the things material handling, when done right, does best is to make industrial facilities safer. When you are storing and handling heavy, bulk products, the way you do that has the potential to make the operation more dangerous (if you do it wrong) or safer (if you do it right). Companies that make a conscious effort to emphasize safety should start with the way they store things. That’s not the end of the safety story, it’s the start. But it’s an important start.

The The College Industry Council on Material Handling Education (CICMHE) through MHIA awarded us third place for a white paper we published last year on material handling and safety — “15 Ways Material Handling Can Make Your Operation Safer”. There are more than 15, of course. There are probably as many ways as there are storage methods. And there are ways to enhance safety with simple products like guard rail and rack enclosures that also help operations in other ways.

You can get the PDF of the paper through the link above. You can also check out our index of materials handling safety related articles and resource links.

The award was a nice thing. To have placed with people like Modern Materials Handling and FKI was very gratifying for us. Thanks to Mike Ogle, CICMHE and MHIA for putting the awards together. It’s the second time we’ve placed. Maybe in 2009, the next time they run it, we can win!
