Northwest Exterminating’s George Simpson was honored with the Home Builders Association of Tennessee (HBAT) prestigious Associate of the Year award for 2021. George is Vice President of Associates of the Central Tennessee division of the HBAT and serves as the Chair for three committees. George exemplifies all that Northwest strives to be for our customers and community, and the team is excited for him to be honored with this recognition.
George joined the Northwest Family in 2011 and has served in the Tennessee area for over six years. He has been part of the Northwest Business Development Team since 2017. George has always held a strong focus on customer experience, and it was that attention to service that led him to be involved with the Central Tennessee division to not only maintain and support builder partnership but also to be a resource and offer trade recommendations to members.
When asked about receiving the Associate of the Year award George said, "I was blown away and totally surprised. Our Executive Officer, Debbie Mann, nominated me in secret, and wow, I’m just grateful. The members of our local division are incredible. While I’m excited for it, it truly is a group effort and takes a village to for every event, fundraiser, and meeting. I’m honored to serve alongside this group and can't thank them enough for all we came together to accomplish this year!”
George chaired the Fishing Tournament and Spring and Fall Golf Tournament Committees. One moment that stood out for him this year was when the Golf Committee realized they ordered too many plates for the attendees. Within the hour, the team found an organization to donate this food to, feeding 50 people through Last Call for Grace Ministries. Being able to help others is what is all about for George and the Central Tennessee division members.
“George has the ability to connect with people and make them feel appreciated because he truly cares and puts his all into everything he does,” said Clay Cochran, Northwest Builder Development Associate and Board Member for the Greater Chattanooga Home Builders Association. “I love working for Northwest because we’re encouraged and supported to build relationships and honor people. I know that helps us all be more successful in our roles. I couldn’t be prouder to be on a team with someone like George. The award is well deserved.”
