Paul Brown, CEO at MHI and UWE Bristol Business Management Advisory Board member, picked up the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Bristol Post Business Awards at the end of June 2019.
This prestigious award recognises hard work, dedication and commitment to Bristol, commending his passion for the local community and businesses. Previous winners include George Ferguson (first elected mayor of Bristol), Nick Park (Aardman Animations), Colin Skellett (CEO of Wessex Water) and Steve Lansdown and Peter Hargreaves (Hargreaves and Lansdown).
In an article by Bristol Post, it was said that ‘Paul is known by his colleagues as someone who uses his position and company to benefit the local community in everything that they embark on.’
During his time as an advisory board member for Business Management at UWE, Paul has advocated for a Triple Bottom Line and has had a huge impact. His other focus is ensuring these soon-to-be graduates are prepared for SME life when their time comes to enter the working world.
Paul also plays an active role in investing in and supporting Bristol-based start-ups, using his 26 years of experience to influence and guide them.
‘Humbled and honoured to be acknowledged for his services to Bristol over the last 26 years, the award is not something that Paul will take lightly – for he is an individual who truly cares, not only about Bristol and the South-West, but beyond too.’ – MHI news.
Congratulations Paul, you are a truly deserving winner and an asset to UWE Bristol.
