Ganguli to receive Pinnacle Award for Lifetime Achievement

The (OS1) Users Group is pleased to announce that Ashoke K. Ganguli has been selected to be awarded the prestigious Pinnacle Award for 2008. The Pinnacle Award is recognition for “Outstanding Contributions to the Cleaning Industry and the (OS1) Program.” It is also the only award in the cleaning industry that is recognized by representative benchmarking organizations managing cleaning operations on a peer review basis.

The nearly 175 organizations and several hundred leaders who have attended Janitor University have been polled and selected Ashoke Ganguli, by secret ballot, to honor his industry-wide contributions.

Ganguli is the Director of Auxiliary Services at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He directs the operations of the longest running (OS1) cleaning program. His program has won several cleaning industry and environmental cleaning awards. Under his leadership the (OS1) Boot Camp Program, the Retuning Management program, (OS1) 3rd party audits and the (OS1) Floor Care program were developed and beta tested for all program users. In 2004 Ganguli and the Auxiliary Services department hosted the (OS1) Users Symposium. In 2007 the Auxiliary Services department opened a state-of-the-art computer assisted (OS1) training facility for custodial operations. Ashoke has two Masters Degrees from the University of Massachusetts and is a graduate of Janitor University.

Ashoke will be presented the PINNACLE AWARD at the Cleaning Industry Awards Banquet during the (OS1) Users Symposium in Durango, Colorado on Monday, August 18. Presentation of the award will be by last year’s honoree, ProTeam the Vacuum Company founder Larry Shideler.
