Camden resident Scott Bucci is one of four employees presented with Nestlé Waters North America President’s Award in January. The company recognized Bucci for his exceptional work, strong community influence and ongoing commitment to the workplace.
“Scott Bucci is a very special employee here at Nestlé Waters,” Nestlé Waters North America CEO and President Tim Brown said in a press release. “Scott’s generosity and passion to improve the lives of those around him is infectious. His hard work and determination to do good in this world has contributed to our company’s long term success and benefitted the local community.”
Bucci, his wife and son recently moved to Camden so he could help lead the manufacturing operations as the Regional Controller at the new Nestlé Waters factory near McBee in Chesterfield County. Bucci began his career at Nestlé Waters in 1989 as a senior accountant. His ability to exceed expectations, inspire others in the workplace, and drive for change resulted in a series of well-deserved and timely promotions.
Those who work closely with Bucci are aware of his extreme generosity and ongoing volunteer efforts in, and outside, of the office. In June 2015, he spearheaded a walk-a-thon in Stamford, Conn., inspired by the tragic loss of a friend, who was also a colleague at Nestlé Waters. Bucci’s compassion and leadership helped raise more than $7,000 dollars to benefit the Huvane Family Educational Trust, a college trust set up for the children of his friend.
“Scott’s tireless leadership at Nestlé Waters helps elevate and inspire others around him to reach their potential,” Brown added. “He sets a great example for all of us, in and out of the office.”
Multiple colleagues have described Bucci as “one of the most caring and compassionate human beings” and “a truly amazing friend, co-worker and leader.”
The President’s Award is an annual award presented on behalf of Nestlé Waters which recognizes some of the company’s hardest working employees, who exemplify the best of what Nestlé Waters stands for, both on the job and in their communities. Company officials said recipients of this award are the unsung heroes that help propel the company forward with their positive leadership, contagious passion and commitment to Nestlé Waters.
