Rolls-Royce CTO Stein and logistics leader Kaye honoured
4 Jul 2018
Despite recent controversy over its restructure plans, Rolls-Royce had cause for celebration as its chief technology officer Paul Stein was honoured for his role in engineering with an honorary degree at Cranfield University.
Stein was previously director general, science and technology, at the Ministry of Defence, responsible for the technical direction, prioritisation and outsourcing of the UK’s £500 million annual investment in defence, science and technology.
Professor Iain Gray, Cranfield director of aerospace (pictured with Stein), said: “Throughout his career, he has encouraged investment in technology, research and top-tier talent – three areas that we also champion here at Cranfield.”
* In a separate ceremony Novus Trust chairman and Bis Henderson Group CEO Andy Kaye has been awarded the Talent in Logistics Awards’ Lifetime Contribution trophy.
Said Kaye: “I’ve been working with an inspired team over the last few years to develop The Novus Trust and its specialist degree courses for young, budding logisticians. So this is a proud moment for me, that our efforts have been recognised.”
