Anthony Chadwick, CEO of Alpha Vet International said:

I was thrilled to hear that I had been put forward for this award. My team and I worked very hard during the pandemic to support the profession by helping associations and companies take their conferences online. We, also, with the BVA kept everyone up to date with government changes and how they impacted the profession. The pandemic has accelerated digital change and I’m excited to help the profession navigate through these changes over the next few years.
