David Hamer, the Chief Executive Officer of Preston based Pakawaste, has had an excellent April for international recognition of his leadership, since he has scooped three international awards – Corporate USA Today – UK CEO of the year; CV Magazine – Most Influential CEO of the year and CEO Today – European CEO Award 2018.
David joined Pakawaste in 2006 as a Sales & Marketing Director and in 2013, he became CEO of the multi million pound company. His key strategy implementation initiatives have led to the company becoming a leading waste management handling solutions provider, particularly in Europe, the Middle East and the Far East.
Commenting on his award successes, David said: “I’m delighted to have won these three prestigious awards, I’m also humbled that my peers both in the UK and internationally hold me in such a high regard. However, the award is not just for me but everyone involved with Pakawaste since our success is a team effort.
“I fundamentally believe that it is crucial that a CEO must lead by example and inspire their colleagues. That’s why, without the passion and ability of everybody at Pakawaste, the firm wouldn’t be the success it is today.”
