(Halifax, NS) The Consumers’ Choice Award (CCA) is honouring Dave Carroll as Halifax’s Man of The Year at a black tie event at the World Trade and Convention Centre on Wednesday December 1st, 2010.
Each year the CCA acknowledges companies or individuals who show an outstanding commitment to customer service in cities across North America. This year will be Halifax’s inaugural CCA event. Past winners include Ted Turner (CNN), Daryl Sutter (Calgary Flames), Julie Payette (Astronaut), Jan Arden, George Stroumboulopoulos and Jim Balsillie (Blackberry).
Says Dave: “My main business concern has always been that the people who pay to see me perform or buy my music feel that they received more than they paid for. I believe that this is honour is a ‘win’ for the whole music industry because it shows that music fans also see themselves as customers, and if they see themselves as customers then, we as musicians, can win new fans with great customer service. This award proves, once again, that simply caring about your fans is the foundation of a long career.”
The CONSUMERS’ CHOICE AWARD is an initiative of CONSUMERS’ CHOICE INSTITUTE (USA) and CONSUMERS’ CHOICE INSTITUTE (CANADA), which has retained a leading independent research firm to conduct a survey in major U.S. and Canadian cities. It is unique in North America, as the winners are determined by consumers and not by a panel of judges. It covers a broad range of categories of interest to the public and to the business community. Their purpose is to publicly identify those establishments which have been voted by consumers as being their choice for excellence.
