Action Automatic Door & Gate Naples Showroom Manager Michele Bezares has received the 4th Annual George F. Ebel IV Award for Excellence, an employee-inspired honor with the company founder and CEO namesake. The award is presented to a staff member who takes on personal and professional challenges with leadership, commitment, drive, determination and passion.
Bezares worked in the customer service department of the garage door company from 2002 to 2007 before returning to Action Automatic in 2015 as a building expediter liaison between local builders and the company. Just a few months later, she was promoted to showroom manager, a title she holds to this day. Her responsibilities include supervision of the commercial and residential gate crews at the company’s Naples location.
“It is no wonder why Michele’s colleagues thought of her for this distinguished award,” said Walter Sprenger, President/CFO. “She possesses all of the key ingredients this company was founded on: problem solving, innovative ideas, fearlessly taking on new tasks, positivity, helpfulness and of course, a good sense of humor.”
The inaugural honor was first presented in 2014, during Action Automatic’s 40th year, to Ebel himself. Since then, every winning employee’s name has been added with each subsequent presentation.
