We are delighted to report that TechMarketView’s Chairman, Richard Holway, has been made a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.
The Citation reads “Chairman, The Prince’s Trust Leadership Groups. For services to young people”.
The Prince’s Trust is the UK’s leading charity helping disadvantaged young people.
In 2002, Richard was one of the early founding members of the Prince’s Trust Technology Leadership Group which has raised over £13m for the Trust since. Richard’s annual speeches have themselves raised £1m to help disadvantaged young people. Richard served as the Chairman of the Group from April 07 to March 09. In 2009 he was appointed as Vice Chair of the Development Board. He then founded the Internet & Media Leadership Group which itself raised over £1m in the last year. In 2011, Richard took on the Chair of all the Trust’s Leadership Groups (Technology, Internet & Media, Retail & Consumer, Construction & Business Services and Insurance & Financial Services), which now collectively raise over £7m pa for the Trust, and was appointed to the Prince’s Trust Advisory Board.
Richard said “I feel greatly honoured to receive this award. I am just one of many people involved in the Prince’s Trust Leadership Groups who have helped raise such significant amounts over the last ten years and I would like to think that this award is recognition for all their efforts as well.”
