Williams is BHL’s best
TAMISHA WILLIAMS is the toast of Banks Holdings Limited (BHL).
Yesterday she was named the winner of the CEO’s Award Of Excellence by chief executive officer Richard Cozier.
Williams, a 32-year-old assistant brewer at Banks (Barbados) Breweries who supervises and coaches a 24-hour brewing team, has responsibility for the brewhouse and cellars operations. She was described by management as showing “a dedication and maturity that is seldom seen in youth today”.
One of Williams’ achievements over her seven years on the job included the ability to take concepts of high gravity brewing and bring them to realisation by streamlining recipes. This is expected to save the brewery over $500 000 in the financial year 2015.
She was also instrumental in the development of the Hard Ears Golden Ram beer of the Malicious Brew Craft Beer Series.
Williams beat out four other employee-of-the-year winners from within BHL’s subsidiaries. She said she was working on a process when she was told the winner was about to be announced and went to check.
Among her prizes are an all-expenses-paid seven-night cruise for two, two return tickets to Miami, US$500 spending money, $1 000 cash, and an extra week of paid vacation. (LK)
