Paul is a Distinguished Visitor at NPL and has been honoured with an MBE in recognition of his voluntary roles in support of the IT profession in the UK.

On receiving the honour, Paul said: “It is a great honour to receive an MBE. The award is the result of the work of a great many people and it’s as much a team effort as it is an individual effort. It’s fantastic to be recognised in this way. It’s an incredibly exciting time in our digital world and I look forward to continuing to promote standards to our rapidly growing and widening community.”

Vicki Saward, Deputy CEO, said: “Congratulations to Paul for receiving this honour.
