US Navy

The Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) announced its 2020 Bingham Award winners. The Bingham Award was established in 1979 to recognize outstanding performance in operations, customer service and community support.

“The Bingham Award is the pinnacle award that our NEX locations work hard to win each year through PREMIER customer service, sales and support to their customers and the installation,” said retired Rear Adm. Robert J. Bianchi, Chief Executive Officer, NEXCOM. “Because of how closely our NEX and base Commanding Officers work to support quality of life for the military community, this award is presented to both of them. Our stores couldn’t do what they do without the support of the base Commanding Officer and our stores are viewed as mission essential to the U.S. Navy. It is a great partnership and our military, Veterans, retirees and families are the beneficiaries.”
