Industry Award for East Lancashire Logistician

The inaugural Logistics Leadership Awards, recently held at the St Johns Hotel, Solihull,  brought together a cross section of senior logisticians in manufacturing, retailing and wholesaling. Hosted by the Managing Director of the Logistics Leaders Network, Peter Acton, guests enjoyed an evening celebrating the achievements of key players within the industry.

The Emerging Logistics Leader of Year category, presented by former star of The Apprentice TV programme Alex Epstein, who featured in series six of the BBC series, was won by Sam Fagan of Padiham based Fagan & Whalley Ltd. Awarded to an individual under the age of 35, who in the judge’s opinion, has made the most positive contribution to the development of the art and science of logistics and supply chain management in any sector.

Peter Acton commented: “Sam is a worthy first winner of this award for his commitment, working for the business whilst studying for his degree; the success of all his projects including the new build 92,000sq. ft. semi automated warehouse facility at Burnley Bridge and his continuous voluntary contribution to the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport as Chairman of the Lancashire Group.”

Alex Epstein, Managing Director of the Logistics Leaders Network, added “This is a richly deserved award for Sam and I wish him every success in his future career at Fagan & Whalley.
