Bluestar's Daniel Kunicki shaking hands with managing director with an award

Southampton bus driver, Daniel Kunicki, is celebrating this week - after being named our employee of the year 2023.

Praised for his excellent customer service skills, Daniel was presented with his award our managing director, Andrew Wickham. 

“Since joining Bluestar early last year Daniel has really shone as a friendly, smiley, colleague and a great bus driver,” said Andrew. “Everyone has always got positive things to say about him, especially our control team - who value his enthusiastic approach. 

“He is always the first to volunteer when colleagues are required on other routes. In fact, he has just returned from Manchester on his latest mission to help out another Go-Ahead Group bus operator with a temporary need for extra drivers. This is all testament to his character. 

“Last year, Daniel helped a customer in distress and took her to hospital - and this reinforced our opinion that his customer service skills are truly exceptional. We all agreed that he should be named Employee of the Year for Bluestar, and we wish him  every success for the coming year.”

In recognition of his efforts, Daniel received £500 worth of vouchers and a trophy.
