84 Lumber has announced this year’s Team Headquarters Award winners.
Winners were selected in two different categories: The Rising Star Award was awarded to Andy Fossick, Senior Manager-Traffic and Logistics, and the Business Excellence Award was given to HR Manager Heather Kovaly.
“We are proud to continue the recognition of our associates here at team headquarters,” said 84 Lumber Chief Operating Officer Frank Cicero. “While the company continues to expand in 2023, it’s important to have top talent to support that growth. Andy and Heather have made a significant impact and I know they will continue to do so in the future. Congratulations to both!”
The Rising Star Award recognizes an up-and-coming associate at 84 Lumber. This individual is an associate to watch and someone who has had a significant impact on their team.
Fossick has been with the company since April 2017 and has been in his current position since June of 2022. Andy’s team assists stores with transportation and freight needs by communicating the most cost-effective way to ship materials.
“Every day, there is an opportunity to save the company thousands of dollars and Andy takes advantage of that, with passion and fervor,” said Vice President of Logistics and Specialty Buying Mitch Feldman. “By expanding his railway knowledge, he has been able to negotiate numerous demurrage charges which has saved the company a great amount of money. Andy has become a leader who has taken on the opportunity to train other associates in finding success.”
84 Lumber established the Team Headquarters Awards program in 2022. Last year’s winners included Ryan Oakes and Ashley Cyprowski.
Twice a year, 84 Lumber associates at headquarters are able to nominate fellow associates for each award. The company leadership team then selects the final winners from the list of nominations. The next THQ Award Winners will be announced later this year.
