  • Tom-Butler-Award-Page_03
    Few individuals today work their entire lives in one industry like Tom Butler. And, according to Tom’s daughter Amy, he never considered making a career change.

    “He loved what he did and the florists,” said Amy Butler Brumby. “He never considered retiring; it would have been like turning his back on his own family.”

    To honor Tom’s dedication and passion, Teleflora has established the Tom Butler Floral Retailer of the Year Award to recognize a Teleflora Member florist who best embodies the legacy of Tom Butler. The award recognizes a retail florist and Teleflora member that, in addition to running a first class retail operation, shows the highest level of commitment and service to their local community, is a dedicated ambassador to the floral industry and provides leadership and guidance to fellow florists.  Last year's winner, Shirley Lyons, embodied these qualities.

    “Tom had a true love for this industry and we want to honor him by recognizing others with a similar passion,” said Teleflora President Jeff Bennett. “People who, like Tom, are committed to and provide leadership in the floral industry.” 

    Nominations deadline: June 30, 2019 Award to be announced Fall 2019.

    Nominations from Territory Sales Representatives, fellow Teleflora Member Florists, and Industry Representatives are welcome.

    Nominations from last year will be carried over to this year.
