SADDLE BROOK, N.J. — Laundry product supplier Tingue, Brown & Co. has honored William “Bill” Webb with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
Presented at the company’s 2010 National Conference and Sales Meeting in Miami, the award recognizes Webb’s contributions to the organization, its sales team and the laundry industry at large, as well as his tenure as an instructor for the American Laundry and Linen College in Richmond, Ky.
During two separate stints with the company as a sales representative, first during the 1970s and then from 1998 until his recent retirement, Webb earned the respect and admiration of his colleagues and customers for his tireless commitment to the success of his clients and for his selfless passion to helping others grow, achieve and succeed, according to David M. Tingue, CEO of Tingue, Brown & Co.
“Bill Webb inspires everyone around him to perform beyond their own expectations—he shatters limitations,” says Tingue. “Bill’s impact on the professionalism and dedication of our sales team will be felt for years to come.”
Webb also impacted the organization during his time away from Tingue, Brown & Co. He co-founded C&W Equipment, a service repair company for flatwork ironers, in 1976. Its growth attracted Tingue, Brown & Co. to the segment, culminating with the 1991 acquisition of Talley Machinery.
“We all learned a lot from Bill and we wanted him back in our family,” says David Tingue. “This is a proud moment for Bill, for our company and for the industry.”
