Concept Amenities Receives President's Award at the 2014 Best Western Australasia Awards for Excellence

Concept Amenities has been awarded the prestigious President's Award at the 2014 Best Western Australasia Awards for Excellence. The award is presented each year to a Best Western hotel member or outstanding affiliate who has made a positive contribution to the organisation over the year. This is the first time in the awards 50-year history that a supplier has received this honour.

Presented by Best Western Australasia President and Chairman, Phil Hateley to Concept Amenities Chief Executive Officer, Michael Matulick on the final night of the Best Western Australasia Convention held in Hobart recently, Hateley explained the significant contribution Concept Amenities has made to the hotel group.

“After 25 years in dedication and support for Best Western, I felt this year was the best chance to recognise the huge contribution Concept Amenities has made not only to the industry, but to the Best Western brand,” Mr Hateley said.

Concept Amenities is a global leader in the supply of environmentally responsible hotel guest bath amenities. In 2013 the company celebrated its 30th year in business, marking several decades as Best Western's preferred supplier of hotel amenities. As his family business, Matulick was proud to receive the award on Concept Amenities behalf.

“It's an absolute honour to accept this award in recognition of a wonderful and rewarding partnership with the Best Western family over many years. I thank my brilliant team, the CA family, for their passion and commitment. Congratulations! We look forward to continuing to strengthen our connection with Best Western and their guests.” Mr Matulick said.

Hateley said he has worked closely with Michael's father and founder of Concept Amenities and was proud to carry out the successful Soap Aid global donation program introduced in 2012.

“Soap Aid is an independent charity established by Concept Amenities to help save millions of lives worldwide. It addresses one of the most critical needs facing our planet today—the lack of hygiene resulting in millions of unnecessary deaths; more often children. It's a great initiative and has really helped us give back to less fortunate communities by recycling and distributing unused amenities to those in need.”

“It is a huge honour to present my President's Award to Concept Amenities this year, and I look forward to seeing Best Western's partnership with them only grow stronger.”
