As a 12-year member of the B&D Service team, Angie has worked her way up in the organization to her current role as administrative manager, overseeing administration of the division’s three service centers located throughout the Southeast.

The John D. Nations award, named after the company’s founder, is B&D Industrial’s highest honor and the selection process is very meticulous. The recipient must represent the award criteria which includes integrity, fairness, strong work ethic, dedication to customer service, leadership, vision, commitment to excellence, generosity and loyal years of service. The winner must be selected by a unanimous vote of B&D Industrial family members.

“Angie has played an important role in the success and growth of B&D Service for quite some time. Her team members nominated her for this award as she is the quintessential glue that holds much of the team together— consistently working behind the scenes to ensure everything runs smoothly and our teams have what they need to be successful,” said Andy Nations, CEO of B&D Industrial. “She is a joy to work with and we are honored to have her part of the B&D family.”

“I am very honored to receive this award and feel grateful for my supportive co-workers who develop, teach and help me grow,” said Steffens. “Throughout my time at B&D, I have found the company and employees to be like family. I had only been here a short time when I first met John Nations. He came in the office and without having a previous introduction, he already knew who I was and was encouraging and personable. Every day my goals are the same, to be successful and make the company successful. This award is icing on the cake!”
