    Nine NEX locations around the world were named Bingham Award winners by the Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM), the highest honor a store can receive. Established in 1979, the Bingham Award recognizes outstanding performance in operations, customer service and community support.

    “Each year, we recognize our ‘best of the best’ NEX locations with the Bingham Award,” said retired Rear Adm. Robert J. Bianchi, Chief Executive Officer, NEXCOM. “While 2021 continued to be a challenge due to the on-going pandemic, staffing and supply chain disruptions, our NEX locations didn’t miss a beat and continued to provide PREMIER customer service to all our deserving patrons. NEXCOM contributes to Navy’s mission readiness with each of our NEX locations working hand-in-hand with their base Commanding Officers to support quality of life for the military community. In recognition of this great partnership, the Bingham Award is presented to both the NEX and installation.”
