ITS (UK) has announced that its International Director, Richard Harris of Xerox, has been awarded the 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award by ERTICO – ITS Europe and will be inducted into the ITS Hall of Fame during next month’s World Congress in Bordeaux.
The organisation says the honour reflects Richard’s many years of leadership and innovation in the international ITS field. As International Director of ITS (UK), Richard has overseen the establishment of an international contacts network which it says is “unparalleled” at the level of national ITS associations, and ensured that ITS (UK) is known and respected around the world.
Commenting on Richard’s award, the Chairman of ITS (UK), Dr Alan Stevens of TRL, said: “This recognition is richly deserved. Richard has worked tirelessly and for many years through ITS (UK) for the benefit of the international ITS community.”
Richard said “I am absolutely thrilled and honoured to be elected to the ITS Hall of Fame. To receive the same award as Fotis Karamitsos and Job Klijnhout, both friends and an inspiration, leaves me rather overwhelmed. I think it is an excellent reflection on how ITS (UK) is percieved internationally”
