Colin Robertson, ADL chief executive has received his CBE at an investiture ceremony performed by Prince William, Duke of Cambridge in Buckingham Palace. Robertson was named in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List earlier this year for services to exports and to the bus and coach manufacturing sector.
Robertson says he continues to champion skills development through the company’s expanded apprenticeship scheme as well as a growing graduate programme and Emerging Leaders Academy, which identifies and nurtures talent within the business.
An advocate for entrepreneurism and talent development at all levels, he was appointed chairman of Entrepreneurial Scotland in September 2018.
“I am delighted and deeply humbled to receive this CBE,” says Robertson. “I couldn’t have achieved it without the fantastic team I have the privilege of leading at Alexander Dennis.”
