Excellence award for DPT’s Donawin Mallory
A traffic supervisor with the Department of Public Transportation has been recognised for going above and beyond in his role to the benefit of the public.
Donawin Mallory was yesterday named the recipient of the Government’s Public Service Excellence Award for December 2022 – an award intended to honour public officers who excel.
A government spokeswoman said Mr Mallory was honoured for “working to the highest standard” while serving as an assistant operations manager in addition to handling his substantive post.
The spokeswoman said Mr Mallory had earned kudos from his colleagues for his work handling tasks usually managed by more senior staff to the benefit of the Department.
He also recently completed an advanced incidents investigation course with the Bermuda Police Service to further develop his technical skills.
Jonelle Christopher, the Department’s acting director, said: “Mr Mallory demonstrates charismatic leadership and is often seen coaching and mentoring his team to perform to higher standards.
“He is compelled to succeed and wishes the same for those around him.”
David Burt congratulated Mr Mallory for his service to his colleagues and the public.
“Your commitment to professional development is extremely admirable. You have provided a stellar example for all,” said the Premier. “Thank you again for going above and beyond in all that you do.”
Derrick Binns, the head of the public service, added: “Your commitment to shoulder the success of your department is commendable, and I have no doubt your story will inspire the whole public service to continue to raise the bar.”
