SHB’s Assistant Operations Manager, Rick Barker, is awarded the BVRLA’s Industry Hero Award for 2015.
Rick was nominated for the accolade due to his commitment to the company and carrying out various tasks that are not necessarily in his job remit. Rick was selected from a long list of nominees to receive the prestigious award and won over others for going above and beyond the call of duty.
Nora Leggett, Head of Member Services at BVRLA, said: “It is always difficult to select winners from such a dazzling list, but the judges were impressed with Rick’s track record of commitment coupled with great reserves of energy that allows him to fulfil with aplomb the responsibilities of two jobs with SHB. A true industry hero!”
Rick was presented with the award in front of 900 colleagues from the vehicle industry at the black tie, BVRLA Annual Dinner on 5 March 2015 at the London Hilton, Park Lane. He was joined by other VIP guests as well as fellow award winners, Rob Allen, of Hitachi Capital Commercial Vehicle Solutions and Marlene Stevenson, of Arnold Clark.
