CHICAGO—The International Executive Housekeepers Assn. (IEHA) has honored Stephen Ashkin, president of The Ashkin Group, with the 2006 William D. Joyner Achievement Award. The accolade, established in 1998, recognizes an individual considered by the IEHA to have helped the organization grow and who has contributed research, technical assistance, articles in Executive Housekeeping Today magazine and written books or guidelines.
The award was presented to Ashkin at the IEHA banquet during the International Sanitary Supply Assn. (ISSA) 2006 convention in Chicago on October 5, 2006.
“I feel privileged and thankful to be selected for this award,” Ashkin says. “There is no greater accolade I could receive from managers of healthcare, hospitality, educational and other large facilities than to be recognized with an award that truly exemplifies the word ‘achievement’—just as Dr. Joyner did throughout his life.”
The mission of The Ashkin Group is to “green” the cleaning industry. It provides green cleaning consulting services for businesses, state and local governments, school districts, building owners, product manufacturers and cleaning contractors.
