CAROLYN Diaz, managing director of Express Employment Professionals South African offices, was recently presented the 2015 Gordon Blair Heritage Award at the staffing company’s annual international leadership conference in Nashville. Diaz was the proud owner of Express Employment Pietermaritzburg.

First presented in 1994 and named after a mentor of Express leadership, the Gordon Blair Heritage Award is the most prestigious honour the staffing company bestows on an individual for significantly contributing to the overall development and success of Express. In order to be recognised, award recipients must demonstrate an unwavering passion for the power of service, generosity and humility.

Since Express began operating in South Africa 16 years ago it has helped more than 82 000 people find meaningful work.

“Carolyn is doing a fabulous job leading our Express offices in that country. Through her efforts she has helped establish Express as a reputable staffing company in South Africa. She is the perfect example of enthusiasm and integrity, constantly caring for others and motivating them to succeed,” said Bob Funk, CEO and chairman of the board for Express Employment Professionals.

Diaz is the first person from South Africa to receive the company’s international award.
