Lesley Robinson, CEO of British Marine, has been appointed to the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE) for her services to the leisure marine sector.
Announced on 12th June in the Gazette, the official newspaper of the Crown, Robinson joins other maritime professionals as being recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2021. Robinson has been a part of the leisure marine industry for over five years and the CEO of British Marine for the last three years, introducing new initiatives such as a new membership structure to deliver increased support and value for members.
Robinson stated, “I am beyond humbled and proud to receive the OBE. I share this honour with the whole team at British Marine, including our staff, Board, Council and Committee members, and want to thank them for all their hard work and contribution to this achievement. This is an award for all of us and is recognition for the leisure marine industry. It shows what great strides British Marine is making for its members and for our industry.”
Robinson encouraged the introduction of the Sustainability Pledge at the Southampton International Boat Show in 2019, with the aim of addressing the environmental impact of the event to its many visitors. More recently, Robinson has led British Marine in supporting the maritime industry throughout the challenges of Brexit and COVID-19.
