Libra Speciality Chemicals – Outstanding Young Talent Recognised at the Chemicals Northwest Awards!

Libra Speciality Chemicals are delighted to announce that we have had great success at last night’s Chemicals Northwest Awards! We were overjoyed to see that our International Sales Manager, Anna Holroyd, won the Young Talent in the Chemical Industry Award! Our Marketing Executive, Jacob Wylde, was also “highly commended” for this award.

Young Talent in the Chemical Industry Award 2021

It gives us great pleasure to say that this category was dominated by the talented young individuals at Libra Speciality Chemicals with the Young Talent in the Chemical Industry Award being won by our International Sales Manager, Anna Holroyd.

Throughout 2020, Anna excelled in her role as internal account coordinator. In September, impressed with her performance, commercial acumen and drive, the management team awarded Anna her second internal promotion to become the new International Sales Manager at Libra. Anna has already made great strides into the International Market, proven by her acceptance of the International Trade Award on behalf of the company.

A special commendation was also given to our Marketing Executive, Jacob Wylde. Jacob was hired by Libra Specaility Chemicals to conduct a placement year in industry as part of his university course. However, he soon exceeded the expectations of a placement student and affirmed himself as a crucial part of the commercial department thanks to his skills in marketing. With no previous experience in the chemical industry, Jacob quickly adapted to this new challenge and had an immediate positive effect on the company’s online presence and has continued to revolutionise Libra’s marketing strategy.

Also shortlisted as a finalist was our incredible young engineer Sahd Hussain. Sahd joined Libra whilst studying for an MEng in Chemical Engineering with Energy at the University of Sheffield to complete a Year in Industry as part of his degree. Upon arrival, Sahd made an immediate impact in the Engineering department, by enthusiastically taking on any project or challenge faced and is now a valued member of the team. Using his skills in chemical engineering, Sahd has had a positive impact on site and is assisting in delivering a major capital project here at Libra.
