Importer AICO/Amini Innovations Corp. reported that it presented three awards at its annual Holiday Party on December 10, 2011.  The Employee of the Year award was presented to AICO’s Director of Fabric Merchandising, Jacqueline Moss, who has been with AICO for close to five years.  “The essence of this award is in the acronym AICO, which stands for Attitude, Initiative, Commitment, and Outstanding performance. Jackie consistently contributes new ideas while enthusiastically leading the charge in the merchandising of AICO’s top-of-bed division,” said AICO President, Martin Ploy.

The Spirit of Excellence was awarded to Leo Martinez, AICO’s Showroom Coordinator, in recognition of the exemplary efficiency and energy he puts forth at all times.  Leo travels to each of the AICO showrooms throughout the year to prepare the showrooms and set up the product.  Commented Chuck Reilly, AICO’s Senior VP of Sales & Marketing, “Leo plays a vital role in the staging of our showrooms.  He is a true leader, and valuable asset to the company.” Leo has been with AICO for close to seven years.
The Partner in Progress award was presented to actress and artist Jane Seymour in recognition of her outstanding contributions to the design and branding of the collections within the Michael Amini and Jane Seymour, A Design Collaboration.  Said AICO’s CEO, Michael Amini, “Jane has great passion for design, and it really shines through when she talks about the product with our customers.  She has been an amazing partner, and I look forward to a long and lasting union.”  AICO’s design collaboration with Jane Seymour was launched in January 2010.

“All three of these awards were well deserved, and I am honored to have such a committed team behind me,” added Michael Amini.
