Ken Snelling of Planes Moving and Storage Receives UniGroup’s Operations Excellence Award

ST. LOUIS – (March 16, 2022) – Ken Snelling of Planes Moving and Storage in Cincinnati was recently presented with UniGroup’s Operations Excellence Award. UniGroup Executive Vice President of Operations Charles Cunningham recognized him at the organization’s national sales and operations conference held in St. Louis.

The Operations Excellence Award acknowledges excellent individual performance in the field of operations at both their agency and within the UniGroup system. The recipient must have demonstrated a passion for exceptional performance, teamwork, professionalism, integrity, commitment and achievement for a common goal. Only one individual is chosen for the annual award from the tens of thousands of employees at the more than 500 domestic agencies.

Ken was recognized by his peers for going above and beyond to help others and always having a can-do attitude. Ken has the heart of a servant leader who is dedicated to his team — sometimes inviting drivers to his home for dinner. He is the go-to person for finding a solution to any problem, always keeping his focus on the customer at the end of every move.

Stephen Sabatalo, Vice President of Operations for Planes Moving & Storage said.

When we asked what this award meant to him, Ken said, “This was a huge honor and very humbling to receive. I am thankful for a great operations team and van operators I am surrounded by each day. Without them, the award would have never been possible. After 23 years with Planes, I still feel excited everyday about going to the office and working with our van operators and teammates to represent Planes the best I can.”
