For the second of our re-launched ‘Superstar of the Quarter employee recognition awards, we again sought nominations from all GSS staff, clients and associates. 

The eventual winner received nominations from several members of both our field-based and head office teams – and a firm nomination from our valued client Bentley Motors

We are delighted to announce that our ‘Superstar of the Quarter’ is Security Concierge – Karl Westerholm. 

Against the backdrop of several other solid nominations, Karl prevailed by perfectly encapsulating our core value of ‘striving for excellence’ in every interaction with Bentley’s staff – and all visitors (including prospective customers!) to the prestigious showroom area within the main Bentley Motors manufacturing facility in Crewe. 

Our winner Karl Westerholm was thrilled to receive this recognition: “The last award I received was from the Royal Marines. I had to get shot in the head to receive that one – so it’s really nice to receive this award for doing my job to the best of my ability without the need to sustain a life-threatening injury!”

Explaining Bentley’s nomination, Ross McLean – Global Head of Security for Bentley Motors said, “I am delighted that Karl has received this recognition as he is an excellent ambassador for Global Support Services and its core operating values. Since working with us at Bentley Motors, Karl has impressed me with his dedication to providing the best first impression for our customers. Well deserved.”

Daniel Mailly – GSS CEO added, “In a role that demands the highest standards of professionalism, communication, appearance and deportment, Karl has not put a foot wrong. In all that he does, he both shines the best possible light on the Bentley Motors brand and enhances the reputation of our company.”
