We reveal the winner of this year’s Employee of the Year, sponsored by Omega Resource Group

Last night, on November 2, we celebrated the region’s best innovative engineering and manufacturing companies at the third annual Cotswold Life Engineering Manufacturing Innovation Awards.

The glittering ceremony held at Cheltenham Racecourse celebrated the incredible achievements made by companies who really do put the Cotswolds on the map, drive the region’s economy and keep the area at the top of the tree when it comes to entrepreneurship and business success.

Thanks to both the nominations of the public and our well-respected judges, we have picked a winner worthy of the award for Employee of the Year, sponsored by Omega Resource Group.

This year’s finalists:

Adam Herniman, Impcross Ltd, Stroud

Adam has been with the company for three years and has grown into an outstanding technician.

He is qualified at level 2 in all the NDT disciplines and is constantly striving to increase his knowledge through self-development and 12 exams - his lowest pass mark being 83%.

He has taken the newer technicians under his wing, trains others and is always the first person in the office. His ideas have allowed the company to speed up production tenfold.

Mike Hazelden, Arc Energy Resources Ltd, Stonehouse

Mike has been at Arc Energy Resources for 12 years.

Despite a generous sick pay scheme, Mike refused to take the time off he was entitled to over six years of serious illness and asked to come back to light duties whenever he was able. Doctors tried to persuade him to retire, but - unable to perform his usual job welding - he reinvented himself as the company trainer and now runs bite-sized training sessions for staff, senior management approach him whenever training is required and he has transformed the culture of the organisation so that staff, however experienced, go to Mike to ask for help to improve.

And the winner is...

Richard Lewis, Avon Group, Gloucester

Richard has been with Avon Metals for seven years and is directly responsible for improved financial performance.

His annual spend on raw materials is £35m and is heavily involved in the sales and marketing of finished products. He is an integral part of new product development, and the company has recently invested £1m implementing his ideas.

Always willing to learn something new and turn mistakes into positives, he travels all round the globe for work and recently worked with the R&D department to develop new alloys, including one supplied to the Royal Mint for the new £1 coin.
