last modified Nov 21, 2016 12:11 PM
Andy Neely has been awarded the Viscount Nuffield Silver Medal for Services to Manufacturing by the IET (Institute of Engineering and Technology) Achievement Medal.

IET Achievement Medals are awarded to individuals who have made major and distinguished contributions in the various sectors of science, engineering and technology. In Andy’s citation the IET say

"Professor Andy Neely has been at the forefront of research on manufacturing industries for over 25 years. He is one of the most widely cited scholars in the world on two primary topics of research and has personally advised four governments. His work on servitisation - the tendency for manufacturing firms to sell services and solutions rather than products - has ensured long term survival and success for many UK firms. His ideas on key performance indicators have influenced numerous organisations to rethink how they position themselves for long term success, including their wider responsibilities to society”.

Andy will be awarded his medal at a ceremony early next year.
