Tim Seagers, founder and Managing Director of Crown Couriers celebrated success at the Institute of Couriers ‘New Fellows Gowning’ ceremony last Friday at the House of Lords. He received a gown for his ‘over and above’ contribution of service to the courier industry which was awarded to him from IoC Chair, Carl Lomas and Tracey Worth, chief executive of the IoC.

Among the personnel at Crown, Tim is now the 2nd member to be gowned, further adding to the company’s strength of having a recognised work-force within their team. Tim was nominated by account manager and colleague, Claire Mullarkey. Claire herself has been a fellow of the institute since 2012 and having joined Crown last year, was impressed with Tim’s dedication and passion for the industry therefore encouraged his nomination. 

Crown Couriers, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, started out with just two vans and has grown to a fleet of over 550 vehicles nationwide under Tim’s leadership. His ‘hands-on’ approach sees him continuing to improve the service offering in numerous ways whether it’s implementing new and innovative technology or investing in his staff. 

Summing up Tim’s selection, Chief Executive of the Institute of Couriers, Tracey Worth commented; “Tim has established the culture at Crown Couriers on integrity and honesty with employees, suppliers and customers and the future growth of the company will never compromise these core values. Tim has applied his early career discipline to become an exemplary supportive leader.”

Adding to this, Tim said, “I am grateful for the nomination and was overwhelmed to be selected. Attending the event at the House of Lords was a special day which I was able to share with my peers and industry fellows.” 

Crown Couriers will continue to nominate their staff for recognition by the Institute of Couriers at the upcoming 2020 Courier Awards.
