Philipsburg, St. Maarten - Several Staff of the NAGICO Insurances Group were awarded at the company's annual End of Year Staff Awards & Dinner held on Saturday; December 14 at the Westin Dawn Beach Resort.

Categories of Awards presented included: Chairman's Award, Manager of the Year, Executive Manager of the Year, Rookie of the Year, Shooting Star, Employee of the Year (for all territories), as well as selected Special Recognition prizes. C.E.O of the NAGICO Insurances; Imran McSood Amjad presented the awards and lauded the awardees and the entire NAGICO Group for their continued hard work throughout the year 2013.
"I just want to sum up my thoughts about my staff in one word from one of my icons; Nelson Mandela; Ubuntu - which means; I am because we are. That term, that word, explains and personifies what NAGICO has here tonight. It is the interconnectedness that we all have with each other. Where our success and failures depend on each other, and we will not succeed unless we relate to each other," Mr. Amjad said. "NAGICO is because of you and I just want to take the time and say thank you to my staff, Thank you for putting in the hard work you do; some of you staying until late in the evening and coming in on weekends, you may not know it but I see it and I appreciate it. Thank you for simply showing up."
He invited six employees to the stage and presented each of them with awards for having a perfect attendance record for the entire year. They are as follows: John Shewdat, Mikaela Bowers, Tamisha Wigley, Sidson Sorton, Peta-Gaye Harriott and Colivere Philips. "These staff that stand before you have never had an absent day for the entire year, they always 'show up' and that I believe is remarkable," he said praising their dedication.
In addition four employees received Long Service Awards; Esmeralda Maria 10 years; Annette Robin 20 years and Magalie Romeo-Hodge and Eric Ellis 25 years. Master of Ceremony for the evening was Fernando Clarke who made the program a light and comedy filled one coupled with the excitement of several coveted giveaways.
