MBE for ESTnet Managing Director Avril Lewis

Congratulations to the ESTnet Managing Director Avril Lewis, who was awarded an MBE for services to the Technology Industry in Wales in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List published on 9 June. 

Avril said of her award, 

“Thank you to all who have been in touch to offer their congratulations. It was a huge surprise, but of course I am deeply honoured and humbled. All of us involved with the ESTnet work extremely hard to raise awareness of the dynamic and innovative Welsh technology industry. We work to ensure that young people are made aware of the opportunities available to them in Welsh technology, to enhance opportunities for women to work in the industry, and to create new business for our members through collaboration. This is reward for all that hard work put in by the operational team, the ESTnet Board, our members and partners.”
