Sir David McMurtry, Renishaw's chairman and chief executive, received The Daily Telegraph Award for a Decade of Excellence in Business at the 2013 U.K. National Business Awards, on November 12.

Tim Jotischky, head of business at Telegraph Media Group, says: “Sir David McMurtry is a highly acclaimed engineer, designer and innovator, and an inspirational role model for young engineers. He exemplifies all that is best about British engineering and innovation and during 40 years at the helm of Renishaw, has also proved himself a very astute businessman. We are delighted that the award will bring wider recognition to an outstanding British business and, in particular, Sir David's role in training a new generation of engineers."

Sir James Dyson, inventor and founder of Dyson Ltd., says, “I think he's a wonderful example of someone who's taken a new technology idea and turned it into a business. In the measurement field, they are very well known. He's also proved that engineers can build and run businesses, which some people claim we can't.”

This award acknowledges the winner's sustained achievements within the business community during a distinguished career. These strategic thinkers combine a big picture perspective with in-depth knowledge; they instil in their staff the ambition and confidence to achieve great things. These are the leaders who have consistently delivered exceptional performance year after year.
