Owen spoke about his award saying, "It was fantastic but a real surprise to win the award alongside my colleagues and peers within the industry. It is nice to be recognised for the work I’ve done.
“Morris Lubricants has been investing in training for myself and other young employees for many years and it’s great that the company has given me such a responsible role within the company. Now I have an opportunity to help other new graduates develop into the industry.”
After undertaking his degree with us at Harper Adams from 2011 to 2015, Owen went on to secure a graduate role with Morris Lubricants based in his home town of Shrewsbury, Shropshire. After working through the intensive application process, Owen was given the opportunity to explore a variety of areas within the business before ultimately settling on a role in purchasing, buying all the raw materials from around the globe for Morris Lubricants and GB Lubricants.
With a strong foundation understanding stemming from his time at Harper, Owen continues to develop his learning. He is looking forward to achieving Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply membership to support his new role as purchasing manager. His award is a testament to his continued desire to achieve as he continues to flourish in the industry.
