Piedmont President's Awards: Dash of Distinction

Piedmont employs 7,000 outstanding employees from coast to coast. Each year, we recognize up to 24 of our best people with a prestigious President’s Award. President’s Award winners are honored with a luncheon in Philadelphia and a check for $1,000. Our 2013 winners were honored on April 8, 2014.

Every employee has the chance to recognize a co-worker by submitting a comment to our Dash of Distinction page on the Piedmont employee website. Here is what a few of our employees have to say about their co-workers:





Good ol' CLT ground stop. The flight deck crew is making great announcements and Penny Hunt is taking very good care of all the weary pax in the back. Well done 4842 crew. - Anonymous
I want to give a big shout out to the CLT ground operation. I don't know what has changed there recently but the improvements are very noticeable from the flight crew end of things. There was a GPU and air cart waiting for us every single time. Just having these basic necessities ready when we request for them "in-range" makes such a big difference for us. Thank you. - E. Dewinne
I would like to compliment the team responsible for renovating the interior of 839EX, better known as "Erl". The plane looks brand new and the passengers recognize it. Keep up the good work. - Anonymous
In-Flight Services definitely has an asset in Charlene Helgason as an IOE instructor. Charlene did my IOE on the E-145 and was superb at her job. She had the patience of a saint and showed me how to do things efficiently while making it fun to learn this new aircraft. Charlene was full of helpful hints to remember how to do things correctly. Charlene is a true professional and loves her job and it shows. Thank you, Charlene, for helping this old dog learn new tricks! The sky is your limit! - Anonymous
Chief Pilot Scott McGuigan is the best chief pilot I've worked for. I would like to thank him for showing appreciation for the extra work I put in for the month of March! - B. Guthrie
