The Master Pools Guild has selected Vance Gillette to receive its inaugural award for lifetime service to the industry. At its recent Excellence Awards, an annual celebration that recognizes outstanding achievements in design and technical engineering, members of the Master Pools Guild presented the very first Industry Icon Award to Gillette. 

“We wanted to recognize the incredible contributions Vance has made to our members," says Executive Director Dick Covert. "His positive message and the partnership we have enjoyed with Vance and Zodiac were the inspiration for this award. The phrase 'industry icon' fits so well, and this was a wonderful opportunity for us to recognize Vance’s relationship with the Guild.” 

“The Industry Icon Award was created to enable us to recognize individuals who have made contributions that have greatly impacted our organization and our members in outstanding ways," Covert says. "The recipients can be members of the Guild or individuals in any area of our industry that have made contributions of this scale.”

The night was filled with celebrations of achievement and well wishes to Vance on his future endeavors.
