Astro is delighted to announce that their Founder and CTO, Steve Smith, has been included in the highly-regarded Field Service News #fsn20 list of service professionals who are leading lights within the field service sector.
Field Service News described Steve as “A shining example of how excellent leadership, out of the box thinking and a genuine dedication to developing talent within the service side of the business can be implemented to establish a service organisation that is able to punch significantly above its weight in terms of establishing an excellent reputation for meeting the highest service standards.
Through innovative schemes such as taking his team sailing across the English Channel Smith has been able to engender an excellent sense of brand pride within his field engineers and is also a major proponent of apprenticeship schemes – through which he is developing a series of excellent, highly professional and well-rounded service engineers who can only enhance Astro’s reputation even further.”
Steve, whilst delighted to have been named in the list which includes the likes of Rolls Royce, Cisco, Fujitsu and Konica Minolta, says the accolade is for the whole company, “Everything we achieve at Astro is as a result of teamwork under the motivating leadership of MD, Steve Hodges. It is great to see my name alongside such esteemed peers, but the Award is for Astro as a whole and not just me!”
