2021 Winners Chartered Manager of the Year

The Chartered Manager of the Year Award celebrates the outstanding achievements and contributions of one exceptional Chartered Manager, to their employer and their own development.

Congratulations to our 2021 Chartered Manager of the Year

Simon has been chosen as the Award winner for his implementation of a sewer flooding improvement plan. This was designed to tackle one of the worst experiences for customers, which has potential to do serious reputational damage. The plan involved 12 different initiatives, and represented a clear step-change in performance for the organisation. As senior manager for this project, Simon was responsible for a multi-disciplinary team and was required to communicate regularly with the ELT. He has therefore exhibited an ability to adeptly project manage a large-scale programme, whilst also managing other responsibilities.

I was delighted when I got the news that I had been shortlisted. Awards like these really help to drive people with a passion to be better managers and leaders. They can be real positive motivators for those, like myself, who want to thrive and get their hard work acknowledged.
