Congratulations to Mick Elliott, who was presented the Roy Atterbury Award by Adam Fletcher 3rd Chairman of ECSN afdec. 

The Roy Atterbury Award is presented on an ad-hoc basis to an individual for outstanding achievement. Originally a public relationships expert in regular contact with all the electronics trade editors and journalists, Roy eventually became the Editor of what is now the Components in Electronics Magazine.

Noticing that the rapidly growing electronics industry needed some coordination, Roy collaborated with UK Electronics Components industry leaders and looked to establish an industry association to represent franchised distributors and the electronics components manufacturers they served. Alongside his Editor job, Roy also served as the first Chairman at ECSN afdec where he served for almost 20 years.

Karen Mascarenhas was on-hand to present Mick his inaugural award, and he also received a gift from the ECSN association.

On receiving the award, Mick Elliott commented, “Thanks very much to Adam and to all the ECSN afdec alumni … It really is a privilege and an honour to receive this inaugural award and especially as it recognises Roy Atterbury’s contribution to ECSN afdec.”

Congratulations to Mick on receiving this inaugural award!
