Daventry, UK, 24th October 2018 – Hankook Tyre UK announces winner of Chairman’s Award for Outstanding Contribution to the tyre industry at the 2018 NTDA Awards. This year the 89th NTDA Annual Dinner and 5th Tyre Industry Awards took centre stage at the Doubletree by Hilton, situated within StadiumMK, home of league one football club MK Dons. As in previous years, over 500 guests gathered to celebrate the achievements within the tyre industry.

At this event premium tyre maker Hankook announced the winner of the Chairman’s Award for Outstanding Contribution to the tyre industry. Hankook Tyre UK, sponsors of the award, were delighted to present the award to Paul Binks, Divisional Director – People Development for Kwik Fit GB. The award was presented to Mr Binks by Brett Emerson, Hankook Tyre UK Sales Director, along with TV Personality Mark Durden-Smith, and NTDA National Chairman Prashant Chopra.

Paul received the award for his role as leader of the People Development Division where his extensive knowledge of Apprenticeships recently led Kwik Fit through a very successful OFSTED Inspection, where all aspects of its programme were graded as Outstanding. The company delivers over 18,000 training days a year through their industry leading training schemes, covering everything from the apprenticeships programme to management and leadership training.

On presenting the award, Brett Emerson commented “Before now, our industry wasn’t somewhere sought after for school leavers. Paul is doing an excellent job of transforming the way younger people look at our industry, and making it a viable route to take after leaving school. I would like to again congratulate Paul for being named as the winner of the Chairman’s Award for Outstanding Contribution at the 2018 NTDA Awards.”
