Hilton’s Park Lane grand ballroom was the venue for last night’s Ex-Forces in Business Awards and we are delighted to announce that Vern Davis, Managing Director of the UK Aerospace, Defence and Security (ADS) sector was named Business Leader of the Year. The awards is the largest celebration and recognition of ex-military personnel in the UK workforce, and the employers that support current and former members of the British Armed Forces. In line with our pledge to the Armed Forces Covenant, Sopra Steria actively seeks to provide career opportunities for this community and has a number of veterans working in all areas of our business. Vern was recognised for his transformation of the ADS business since joining in 2017.
Vern commented ‘I am delighted to have been recognised in these awards. Sopra Steria has a fantastic culture that really values different backgrounds and experiences, including those of the armed forces community. It is an honour to have been named Business Leader of the Year and I thank my team for all their hard work and support throughout our transformation of the ADS business.’
