Pittards CEO Reg Hankey Receives Honorary Degree in Hong Kong

In a ceremony held in Hong Kong on the eve of the Asia Pacific Leather Fair 2014 on March 30, the University of Northampton awarded Honorary Degrees to a select group of top global tanners which included CEO of Pittards, Reg Hankey. The opportunity for nomination of this award was only available to the cohort of Diplomats graduating up to 1995, meaning they will typically have given at least 18 years of industrial experience since graduating. Reg was among 14 individuals to receive the Honorary Degree, Bachelor of Science and Pittards would like to congratulate him for this admirable achievement. The rationale for nominating the Diplomates is to recognise the contribution they have made to the global leather industry and its associated supply chain over the decades since graduating and it celebrates the unique relationship the University has with the business world of leather and associated industries.
