I’m very grateful that all of my efforts have been recognised at the highest possible level.’ Speaking about Oliver’s win, Wolfestone co-founder Roy Allkin said: ‘We are all delighted for Olly – he is an outstanding example of a Business Development Manager who always aspires to provide an excellent service and who has a very positive impact on the whole team. There couldn’t be a worthier winner.’ This year’s judging was undertaken by a panel comprising Rudy Tirry, President of the European Union of Associations of Translation Companies, Sarah Griffin-Mason, Chair of the Institute of Translation & Interpreting, Laura Brandon, Executive Director of the Globalization and Localization Association and Geoffrey Bowden, General Secretary for the ATC, who was the non-voting chair of the judging panel.

We would like to congratulate Oliver on his win and hope that he and the other winners can help to demonstrate the importance and benefits of a career in the language sector for future generations.’ Magdalena had this to say about her commendation: ‘To be nominated was an honour in itself, to come runner-up in such a tight category with the best national Project Managers is a great achievement. I went back to work with a smile on my face knowing that not only my company recognises my hard work, but the national independent body that sets the industry standards.’ Wolfestone would like to thank Olly and Magda for being excellent members of staff and the ATC for honouring us with the nominations.
