Katy wins top ser­vice per­son Romeo award


Stratford Press - - News - By ALICE COWDREY

TSB Bank cus­tomer ser­vice con­sul­tant Katy Ge­orge has been in the job for six years and loves it.

“I like the va­ri­ety of the job — no day is the same. I like work­ing with num­bers and love cus­tomers and I like help­ing peo­ple. I get a lot of sat­is­fac­tion out of mak­ing things good for them.”

Katy re­cently won the ITM Strat­ford Best Fe­male Ser­vice Per­son cat­e­gory at the re­cent Strat­ford Press Romeo Busi­ness and Ser­vice Awards and says she is rapt with the recog­ni­tion.

“I want to say a big thank you to the peo­ple who nom­i­nated me — it re­ally was a huge shock to win.

“I re­ally did not ex­pect that,” she said.

She says be­ing good at the job comes down to to be­ing friendly and ap­proach­able and be­ing able to talk to all dif­fer­ent types of peo­ple.

Born and bred in Taranaki, Katy lives on a lifestyle block just out of Strat­ford with her hus­band Peter and has three chil­dren Kieran (21) Me­gan (19) and Michael (15).

Be­fore work­ing at the bank, Katy did a va­ri­ety of jobs as well as stay­ing at home with the chil­dren when they were young be­fore start­ing part-time work at Strat­ford SBA and be­fore hav­ing chil­dren at the AA.

Her job in­cludes new cus­tomers, open­ing ac­counts, In­sur­ance and Kiwi Saver and gen­er­ally help­ing peo­ple out and she can’t see her­self do­ing any­thing dif­fer­ent.

“I love work­ing here and TSB is a great firm to work for.

They are re­ally great at re­spond­ing to our needs and I couldn’t have asked for a bet­ter com­pany to work for.”

Katy Ge­orge.
