Brad Landwehr of Stratford has won a National Technician Award. He was selected from over 280 nominations for Field Nation’s Service Providers of the Year awards.

The annual Service Providers of the Year (SPOTY) awards recognize the top technicians on Field Nation, an online marketplace that connects businesses with skilled technicians.

Landwehr received the Most Nominated award; this award is given to the provider who received the most nominations from companies who conduct work on Field Nation.

“The Service Providers of the Year awards provide a chance for us to highlight the professionalism, quality, and client-focus of our providers,” said Mynul Khan, founder and CEO, Field Nation. “With more than one million work orders completed last year and 693 new companies who joined Field Nation in 2019, we believe it’s important to thank the high achievers who keep pushing the platform forward.”

Each year, the selection committee evaluates winners based on technicians’ Field Nation profile ratings, number of work orders completed and existing reviews. This year’s winners were chosen from 280 nominations across 10 categories.

Categories include, but are not limited to Service Provider of the Year, given to a technician who excels in all areas; Tech of all Trades, awarded to a technician with a diverse range of skillsets and Rookie of the Year, which recognizes a provider who joined Field Nation within the last year and has already completed a high volume of work orders with quality ratings.
