Bob Wilson receives Local to Global FirstPro award

Bob Wilson, the University's Director of Estates, was given the special Local to Global Award at this year's Coventry and Warwickshire Professional of the Year Awards.

The Award comes in recognition of Bob's work to bring the local region to the attention of a global market through his management of multiple complex construction projects on campus, including buildings like the Bluebell halls of residence, IIPSI, the Mechanochemical Cell Biology building (MCBB), and many others.

Bob said:

I'm really pleased to see Warwick recognised as a globally relevant institution by the people who live in its local region, and it's great to have our work in Estates praised as a major part of that. Thank you to everyone who's worked with me to make campus what it is today."

The FirstPro Awards aim to celebrate the skills and expertise of professionals in the Coventry and Warwickshire area, recognising individuals who contribute to the growth of the region by putting something back into the community.

Karen O'Donoghue, CEO of Coventry and Warwickshire First said:

"The panel felt that Bob is helping to raise our game – contributing significantly to our ambition to operate at another level beyond local markets."
