North West based fuel management business Triscan Systems was again delighted to sponsor the Chartered Institutes of Logistics and Transport’s prestigious Student of the Year Award which went to Sam Fagan of Fagan and Whalley.
Sam who is a third year student at Huddersfield University and is currently on his gap year, works at the family business Fagan & Whalley Limited of Padiham and picked up his award from Triscan’s Keven Emery prior to flying off on holiday the same evening.
The event held at the Crannage Hall Hotel last Friday 24th June, attracted guests from all over the region. Dave Guest of the BBC’s North West Tonight programme hosted the evening which included a Keynote address by David Irlam – Executive Director of the Stobbart Group and the ‘Completely Cher Show’ by local act Paula Randell
Simon Reynish, chairman of CILT’s North West said: “These awards are put together with input and assistance from all of our sponsors and I am again extremely pleased with the outcome. With all the advances in technology associated with telemetry and fuel management, Triscan recognises the contribution that transport and logistics students make to the industry and the North West economy – it again bodes well for the future.”
Triscan’s Keven Emery who presented the Student of the Year Award also commented “The award was obviously central to our participation in this great fuel management event but I have to add that everyone had a fantastic time. Geoff Clarke from AECOM was one of our guests for the evening and picked up two awards on behalf of his organisation; the Freight Best Practice programme won the Environmental Award whilst colleague Richard Elviss received recognition for Lifetime Achievement”
