FULTON — Eastern Shore Associates has awarded its annual Partnership Award to Ken Eccleston, agency information technology consultant with Micro Computer Solutions, it was announced by Eryl Christiansen, ESA president and CEO.
“This award was established to recognize individuals from our insurance carriers, as well as our community partners, for their outstanding performance and relationship with our agency,” Christiansen said. “Ken has been part of the ESA family for 25 years and his relationship with our team truly embodies the definition of partnership.
“Ken has kept our IT network and individual workstations running smoothly and he’s had answers for our many questions through the years. He has been an important part of ESA’s growth and he’s kept up with new and innovative solutions for our cyber security. Simply put, he is a great friend to all of us at ESA, and a model of integrity, confidentiality and honesty.”
Eccelston was nominated for this award by the ESA employees with whom he works. Among their comments in nominating him were: “Nobody deserves this award more than Ken. An IT specialist needs to be strategic, proactive and help their clients be more efficient. Through the years of working with him, I have learned of his passion for his work. So many times his attention to details really made a big difference in improving our daily work efficiency and security. The truth is, however, that very few can really perform at the level of excellence that Ken does.”
