LEWISTON — Geiger recently presented its President’s Awards for 2016.

The awards are the highest recognition conferred on associates. They are given in five classifications of accomplishment: business achievement, community service, customer satisfaction, leadership, and process improvement, which are based on a set of corporate values, known as the Geiger Way.

The recipients were chosen from the pool of all of the Geiger Stars and All Star Teams awarded during the preceding year. Recipients are presented with an engraved award and a gift card.

Alan Groudle was given the President’s Award for leadership. Every week from May to October 2016, he led a group of co-workers to walk or run 3 miles. He also took photos and promoted the activities on a private social media page for Geiger associates. 

Dawn LaPrell was also given a President’s Award for leadership. She led a massive project to get tokenization implemented. Since then she has worked on improving the use and deployment of the software, creating payment portals for end users, which adds convenience and simplification to payment processes for customer invoices.

Tammi Caouette received a President’s Award for business achievement. She discovered that shipping discounts were not being credited to Geiger. She spent several months going back and forth with vendors until they would redo invoices with the discount included, resulting in Geiger recovering more than $10,000 in shipping costs.

Headquartered in Lewiston, Geiger operates 11 divisional offices across the U.S., and is affiliated with more than 450 independent sales consultants.
