Second Time Lucky?
05 March 2012
BWB has once again been shortlisted for Small Consultant of the Year in the NCE/ACE Consultant of the Year Awards; this being the second consecutive year that the company has made the shortlist. Steve Wooler and Greg Nicholson will be attending the award ceremony at Claridges Hotel in London on Friday 30 March where the winners of the category will be announced.
BWB are one of 26 firms that have bucked the global downturn to make the shortlist for the prestigious NCE/ACE Consultants of the Year Awards. All 26 firms have managed to increase turnover and fee income in the midst of a deep recession. Almost all have managed to increase the number of engineers they employ. The firms are shortlisted in four categories. The categories have this year been refreshed and reinvigorated to better reflect changing priorities in the global consultancy market – not least the growing focus on global expansion and international consolidation.
Judging the awards alongside NCE editor Antony Oliver, deputy editor Mark Hansford and Consultants File editor Margo Cole will be Association of Consultancy and Engineering (ACE) chief executive Nelson Ogunshakin, ACE chairman and WYG chief executive Paul Hamer, FIDIC president and former Scott Wilson chairman Geoff French, Numis Securities analyst Francesca Raleigh and Manchester Business School professor of innovation management and strategy Bruce Tether.
Executive Director, Greg Nicholson, commented,
"We’re delighted to be nominated for this prestigious award for the second year on the run. As a business, we continue to strengthen our operations in the UK through diversification of service and regional growth and are moving forwards with our plans to expand internationally having recently secured new projects in Australia. We’re certainly keeping our fingers crossed that this year we will be successful in winning this coveted prize.”
