SHARING THE HONOUR … In January last year, Bob Holt, Chairman of Mears Group PLC was awarded his OBE. His year-long celebrations have been all about working even harder and making monumental changes to ‘share’ his award with others.
When Bob Holt, Chairman of Mears Group PLC and a favourite game changer in the UK business arena, was awarded his OBE in January 2016, he pledged that he would ‘share’ the Honour! One year later and there is plenty of proof that he has done that and much more. Bob’s OBE was in recognition of the incredible charitable efforts he has made in both his personal and professional life so far. His commitment hasn’t slowed down even slightly since receiving the Honour. On the contrary, in the past 12 months, Bob has continued to make great leaps in the voluntary sector both at home and abroad. As a staunch philanthropist, it is clear that Bob’s charity work will continue to benefit many thousands of people, for many years to come. Just as relentless is his avidity for growth and success in business. Not just his own businesses but those in which he has any affiliation. It has always been the case but since January 2016, Bob has been responsible for making monumental and dignified reforms to some of the most important businesses in the UK. As always, it is positive results that win every time.
