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

On the evening of Thursday September 20, we celebrated the region’s best innovative engineering and manufacturing companies at the fourth annual Cotswold Life Engineering Manufacturing Innovation Awards, held at Cheltenham Racecourse.

The glittering black tie ceremony 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 Employee of the Year, sponsored by Omega Resource Group.

The finalists are:

Anne Partridge, Stewart Golf, Quedgeley

Anne was one of the first members of staff at Stewart Golf and is the longest serving aside from the directors of the company and her work ethic, attitude and sheer reliability make her one of the key members of the team. As anyone in a leadership role will testify, team members with this work ethic are like gold dust.

Mike Shaw, Truturn Precision Engineering, Stroud

Mike has been at Truturn Precision Engineering for 24 years and has shown exceptional commitment, loyalty and skill. Mike is apprentice trained to City and Guilds, is the mentor for apprentices and is the longest serving engineer.

And the winner is...

Kerissa Khan, Safran Landing Systems, Gloucester

Kerissa is an invaluable ambassador for Safran and the wider aerospace community having made a significant impact on both - an aerospace engineer with a dynamic profile, ranging from creating innovative design solutions for military, commercial and business aircraft landing systems, to shaping the UK aerospace sector’s industrial strategy.

The youngest elected Council Member of the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) governing board, she directs its professional, technical and learned affairs globally alongside distinguished international leaders, whilst representing Safran and championing the aerospace profession to the next generation
