The Leading Wales Awards 2005 were launched this year. People were invited to nominate colleagues whom they regarded as exceptional leaders and Brecon’s Training and Standards Manager Des Preece decided to nominate John Bath.

The Awards aim to recognise and celebrate personal achievement in outstanding leadership and management. Nominations were submitted from all over Wales and the finalists were short listed from over 70 candidates.

The Awards were presented at a lunch at the Cardiff Hilton and John Bath was the winner in the “Businesses with more than 250 Employees” category, sponsored by The Principality Building Society.

After the success of the Award, Des Preece said, "When I first heard about these awards, I knew that John would be an ideal nomination, but I had some difficulty persuading him to participate. Eventually he agreed, on the understanding that any success could only be beneficial for Brecon Pharmaceuticals. We took our eight Staff Council members to the event and of course we were all absolutely delighted when John won. It is a great achievement for John and everyone at Brecon."

Barbara Chidgey, consortium member and spokesperson for the Leading Wales Awards said, "The standard of entries for the first ever Leading Wales Awards was tremendous, making the selection of finalists and winners extremely challenging for the judges. All the finalists have shown outstanding abilities in providing direction, gaining commitment, facilitating change, and achieving outstanding results, through the efficient, creative and responsible deployment of their people and resources."
