A WAREHOUSE manager with “infectious enthusiasm” has been shortlisted for a top industry award.
Adam Byrne, who works at Rick Bestwick Scunthorpe, part of the Magnavale Group of temperature-controlled warehouses, is one of 11 finalists in the Rising Star category of the People Awards.
Organised by the British Frozen Food Federation (BFFF), the awards celebrate the best talent the frozen food industry has to offer.
Adam, a shift manager at the Celsius Parc facility, has been put forward by the Magnavale Group thanks to his dedicated customer service and strong leadership which they say makes the working environment “a happier place to be”.
The 26-year-old, from Scunthorpe, said: “I enjoy every aspect of my job so to be nominated for what I do day-to-day is a real honour.”

Amanda Cogan, operational managing director of Rick Bestwick Scunthorpe, said: “Adam is a rare commodity, a team player who strives to better the environment around him. Rising star is a more than apt description of him.”
Adam will be one of over 40 high-flyers from the frozen food industry in contention for 10 awards, which will be presented at an event tomorrow (Thursday, February 22) at the Birmingham Hilton Metropole.
Finalists will be invited to an exclusive reception before the awards dinner, where they will be able to celebrate among their peers.
John Hyman, chief executive of the BFFF, said: “These awards were launched to celebrate the unsung heroes that continuously drive the frozen food industry to be the dynamic and developing sector that it is.
“We know the level of talent that is out there but the standard of entries we received was exceptional and it was really encouraging to see how many industry leaders put forward members of their teams that they believe are deserving of recognition.”
