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 unparallelled 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.”
Reacting to the award, 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”
