LONDON, 26 July: Adler and Allan has been announced as finalists in four categories in the 2022 British Ex-Forces in Business Awards, the largest business celebration globally of the Armed Forces community.

Employer of the Year

Adler and Allan has been shortlisted in the Employer of the Year category.

British Ex-Forces in Business Awards

Adler and Allan understand the powerful advantages of hiring from the Armed Forces community. We’re a stronger business because of our service leavers and proud to have earned the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme’s (ERS) Bronze and Silver Awards.

Rising Star

Aaron Robinson has been shortlisted in the Rising Star category.

After a distinguished 16-year forces career, Aaron Robinson joined Adler and Allan’s computer-aided design (CAD) team in 2018. In just four years, Aaron has moved from committed serviceman to first-class commercial manager, emerging as one of Adler and Allan’s brightest business leaders.

Military Values in Business

Ben McNally has been shortlisted in the Military Values in Business category.

Ben McNally joined Adler and Allan during his resettlement period following six years as a Design Draughtsman for the British Army. Where others would give up, Ben simply gets on with the job, working with honesty and character, generating measurable results, and treating his team with fairness and respect.

Engineering Excellence

Jim Eden has been shortlisted in the Engineering Excellence category.

When Jim Eden joined Adler and Allan in 2006, he brought with him an exceptional engineering skillset. His military training means you can throw the hardest job at him and he will engineer his way out of it.

Winners will be announced on 8 September

The Awards programme is a powerful vehicle for increasing visibility of both role models and career opportunities for veterans, and educating employers on the exceptional transferable talents among military service leavers.

This year’s UK shortlist exhibits the second-career achievements of over 200 veterans and reservists, whittled down from a record-breaking 700 nominations. The breadth of opportunities available to veterans are evident through the big variety of sectors represented on the shortlist.

The winners of this year’s British Ex-Forces in Business Awards will be announced and celebrated at a sparkling ceremony on 8 September.

Broadcaster Jacqui Oatley MBE will welcome over 1,000 business and military leaders to the Grosvenor House hotel’s prestigious Great Room on Park Lane. As well as hosting the highly anticipated awards ceremony, Oatley will introduce a programme of live entertainment and special guest speakers, including Air Marshal Dame Sue Gray, the UK's first female three-star officer.
