Andy Kaye, CEO of Bis Henderson Group and Chairman of The Novus Trust, has received one of the logistics industry's top accolades at this year's Talent in Logistics Awards by being presented with the Lifetime Contribution Award, sponsored by Doosan.
The annual Awards and conference event, dedicated to the training, development and recognition of the 2.2 million people working in transport, warehousing and logistics, was held in Telford on 21st June and was attended by over 260 logistics professionals.
Stepping up to receive his trophy from host for the evening, Jeff Stelling, presenter of Gillette Soccer Saturday, the commendation from the judges read: "Andy has been instrumental in shaping the face of the industry through an unwavering commitment to mentoring other professionals. He has worked tirelessly to promote the industry, volunteered his free time to bring new talent into the sector and is passionate about everything he does."
On winning the Award, Andy Kaye said: "I'm surprised, and of course absolutely delighted, to be honoured in this way. I've been working with an inspired team over the last few years to develop The Novus Trust and its specialist degree courses for young, budding logisticians. So this is a proud moment for me, that our efforts have been recognised.
"But I believe it's also important that people across all levels of an organisation feel engaged and truly motivated by the opportunities that exist in our sector for career development and that's why, more recently, I have founded Bis Henderson Academy, which is focused on developing talent through apprenticeship level training. I would like to share this moment of recognition with all those individuals who have been involved in both of these initiatives. Thank you."
