Sharing in Growth CEO hits 2018 Top 100

Sharing in Growth CEO hits 2018 Top 100
Andy Page The Manufacturer Top 100 role model

Andy Page has been recognised as an Unsung Hero in The Manufacturer’s Top 100 of industry role models.  As Rolls-Royce’s Global Executive for Supplier Development, he was a founder of Sharing in Growth, the award-winning productivity and competitiveness programme which has now helped the aerospace supply chain secure more than £3.2 billion in contracts.

The Manufacturer Top 100 began in late 2013, as a response to the lack of visible role models in the industry, as identified by several academic and parliamentary studies. Each year The Manufacturer gathers industry recommendations for role models in categories of  Inspiring Leader, Bold Investor in New Markets, Driver of Cultural Change, Young Pioneer and Unsung Hero. An industry judging panel then decides the final Top 100 which are published in a report which champions and publicly identifies dynamic leaders and innovators in the sector.

The broader Sharing in Growth community has been well represented in the report over the years. It has recognised Produmax’s Mandy Ridyard and Dave Brady, Andrew Churchill of JJ Churchill, Matthew Grainger of Grainger and Worrall, Ian Ellis of Aeromet, and business transformation coach Rebecca Turner who hit the Top 100 when she was manufacturing excellence manager at Jaguar Land Rover.  This year they all join the Top 500 Manufacturers in the UK Hall of Fame which was launched this year as part of Digital Manufacturing Week, an annual celebration of UK manufacturing that brings together technology, finance and advanced manufacturing in Liverpool.

As well as being chief executive officer of Sharing in Growth, Andy is also a panel member of the Queen’s Award for Innovation, a member of the National Productivity Working Group and a Fellow of the IMechE. He joined Rolls-Royce with an engineering degree and held roles including Chief Engineer for the Tornado engine, purchasing director for Rolls-Royce in Germany and Chairman of NATEP.

Said Andy: “I feel particularly proud to be recognised amongst this community of current and future generation leaders who are so committed to developing highly valued manufacturing.”
