With great pleasure, the Master and Wardens congratulate Court Assistant Dr Clive Hickman on his award of an OBE in the New Year’s Honours List for services to engineering, manufacturing and technology.  This honour follows swiftly on the heels of his award of the Royal Academy of Engineering’s 2021 Sir Frank Whittle Medal for outstanding and sustained achievement in any engineering discipline.

Congratulations are also offered to non-active member of the Freedom Sir Douglas Oakervee, who was appointed as a Knight Bachelor for services to transport and infrastructure delivery.   Finally, the previous Lord Mayor, Alderman Sir William Russell, was also appointed as a Knight Bachelor following his two year tenure as Lord Mayor; specifically for services to financial innovation, culture, and wellbeing in the City of London particularly during Covid-19.
