At a House of Lords ceremony, founder and managing director of Crown Couriers Tim Seagers celebrated the success of his business at a ‘New Fellows Gowning’ by the Institute of Couriers for his ‘over and above’ contribution of service to the courier industry. 

The Institute of Couriers Chair, Carl Lomas and CEO of the IoC, Tracey Worth performed the ceremony.

Seagers is the second person at Crown Couriers to be awarded a fellowship – Claire Mullarkey, account manager at the couriers was already a Fellow and nominated her boss for the fellowship. Having joined Crown Couriers last year she was impressed with Seagers’ dedication and passion for the industry and nominated him as a result.

Seagers founded Crown Couriers 30 years ago with two vans. It now has more than 550 vans nationwide. He has taken a ‘hands on’ approach to running the business and is constantly seeking new ways of improving the business whether investing in his staff or implementing new technology.

Summing up Tim’s selection, Chief Executive of the Institute of Couriers, Tracey Worth commented; “Tim has established the culture at Crown Couriers on integrity and honesty with employees, suppliers and customers and the future growth of the company will never compromise these core values. Tim has applied his early career discipline to become an exemplary supportive leader.”

Adding to this, Tim said, “I am grateful for the nomination and was overwhelmed to be selected. Attending the event at the House of Lords was a special day which I was able to share with my peers and industry fellows.” 

Crown Couriers will continue to nominate their staff for recognition by the Institute of Couriers at the upcoming 2020 Courier Awards.
