Andrew Walker, principal engineer at SABIC’s Wilton International site in the UK, is the recipient of the inaugural Stuart Turner Award.
Established in 2021 to honour the memory of Stuart Turner, an enthusiastic advocate for all things EEMUA, the award recognizes an employee of a member organization who has made a significant contribution to EEMUA.
Andrew impressed the awards committee with his invaluable contribution to many different areas of EEMUA, including input to guidance documents, information sheets and e-learning, and participation in EEMUA conferences, and especially, his longstanding commitment to participating in and chairing the Rotating Machinery (MAC) committee for nearly a decade.
On winning Andrew said: “I am surprised and delighted to receive the 2021 Stuart Turner Award. I have worked with EEMUA over many years and value the opportunity it gives to network with excellent people working in similar industries. Working together we can make our workplaces both safer and healthier places to be.”
Simon Mann, technical lead, SABIC, commented: “Stuart was committed to EEMUA and the industry, so this award is a poignant reminder of the positive impact he made and his enduring legacy. I am very pleased for Andrew that his own long-standing contribution to the many different areas of EEMUA has been recognized. SABIC and EEMUA have both benefited greatly from Andrew’s dedication to collaborating with others to share expertise and create guidance.”
Helen Turner, Stuart’s widow, added: “I was very proud when EEMUA approached me regarding the award, it is such a lovely tribute in recognition of the contribution Stuart made; he was truly passionate about the work EEMUA does and how he could personally make it better. The beauty of this award is that it will recognize many others for their efforts too, and I would like to congratulate Andrew on being the worthy winner of the first Stuart Turner Award.”
For EEMUA, the award is a fitting tribute to Stuart, which allows the association to recognize others who are passionate about EEMUA and contribute to its continuing success.
