ST. LOUIS (Oct. 15, 2019) – UniGroup President and CEO Marc Rogers recently presented Charles G. McDaniel of Hilldrup in Stafford, Virginia, with the 2019 UniGroup Lifetime Achievement Award at the organization’s annual meeting in Nashville. The award recognizes individuals who have shown particular dedication to and leadership within UniGroup and the moving industry.
McDaniel has nearly 60 years of experience in the industry, working at Hilldrup since he was 12 and full-time since he graduated college. He is a visionary who rallied his team around the concept of taking care of the customer and striving to be the best, not the biggest. Under his leadership, Hilldrup opened a first-of-its-kind 10,000 square foot training center at its headquarters, expanded to include eight facilities along the Southeast and reached gross sales of $100 million.
Beyond Hilldrup, McDaniel influenced the moving and transportation industry by serving on the UniGroup Board of Directors for a total of 22 years. He also served on the board of AMSA/American Movers Conference for 22 years as well as sat on multiple chamber of commerce and other boards while pursuing philanthropic work.
“Charles was very active in changing the history of our company and our industry,” Rogers said. “Throughout his decades of experience, he’s left a legacy of innovation, quality, customer service, respect and loyalty. He is an example of what a true leader should aspire to be.”
“While much has changed in our business,” explained Charles W. McDaniel, President and CEO of Hilldrup. “[Charles G.] has instilled in me, the leadership team, and in his grandchildren, the importance of being the very best moving services company with a clear focus on quality, service and to respect each of our team members who make our success possible every day.”
Since 1903, Hilldrup has focused on making moving simple for our customers. The company offers local, long distance and international moving options for individuals, corporations and government agencies. Now in its fourth generation of family ownership, Hilldrup’s commitment to quality and integrity remains the guiding principle. Whether working with local movers, international experts or any customer service professionals, the goal is always the same: be the best at what we do, and success will follow.
