James Gazzard, Sales and Marketing Manager for WES Engineering Solutions, recently scooped a prestigious award at the annual Unlocking Cornish Potential (UCP) Celebration event.

One hundred graduates gathered for the event at the CUC's Tremough campus to recognise the accomplishments of the project’s top achievers of 2007.

Welcomed by UCP Project Manager, Allyson Glover, guests celebrated the completion of the year’s successful projects with the awarding of certificates and with presentations by graduates, project officers and businesses.

51 graduates were nominated in six award categories and winners were chosen by UCP Project Manager Allyson Glover in conjunction with the graduates’ mentors and project officers for showing an outstanding contribution to business success in terms of increasing turnover, profitability, market share and business development.

James was presented with the award for Best Marketing Impact by Andy MacDonald of Business Link for his successful implementation of a comprehensive marketing strategy which led the company in both new and existing markets. He joined the company in 2006 having achieved a 1st Class Business Management Degree and undertook a 1 year project as 'Marketing Strategist' which included rebranding the company's activities as part of a comprehensive Marketing strategy.

Carleen Kelemen, Director of the Objective One partnership office was one of the prominent figures supporting the event and in an upbeat speech she commented:

"The Cornwall of today is just about the best place to be working, studying, bringing up a family and building dreams. Objective One projects have provided workspaces, training, education opportunities, research funds, broadband and improved transport links which have enabled partnerships to work together to make Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly one of the fastest growing economies in the UK. Projects like Unlocking Cornish Potential and the Combined Universities in Cornwall Business Development Team have played a large role in reaching out to businesses and expanding the opportunities for many in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly – and long may that continue.”
