By | Press | No Comments

Nick de Lisle, NMS Bid Manager, was named joint winner of the GTR Young Exporter of the Year award at this year’s British Exporters Association annual luncheon, held at Mansion House on 10 October 2016.

The event, sponsored by National Bank of Abu Dhabi, was attended by 200 members and guests including the Lord Mayor of the City of London, The Rt. Hon. Alderman the Lord Mountevans and Sir Richard Needham, the Earl of Kilmorey.

Speaking after the award, Nick said: “It’s a great honour to have received such an award and one which I am very proud of. However, it would not have been possible without the support of the NMS Directors, who have allowed me to take on greater responsibilities and learn from more experienced personnel in the firm about contract negotiations in challenging business environments. I see it not just as an achievement for myself but for NMS and the way in which we operate.”
