The Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA) just announced that the recipient of the 2019 GCCA European Cold Chain Future Leader Award is Ben Price, commercial manager for Grocontinental, an AGRO Merchants Group company.
The GCCA Future Leader Award recognizes talented young professionals who have the potential to become future leaders and make a positive contribution to the development of the global temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics industry. Furthermore, to be selected for the award, nominees had to demonstrate excellence in their work, the potential to excel further in the many facets with the industry and possess insight into their organization’s strategic values and direction, policies and ways of working.
The award was presented during the GCCA European Cold Chain Conference in Brussels, Belgium by Corey Rosenbusch, president and CEO of GCCA and Doug Harrison, Chairman of the International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW), which is a core partner of GCCA.
“I am proud to be recognized as a future leader in the Cold Chain industry by receiving this award. This was an amazing experience for me, and I really appreciate the opportunity to learn, grow, meet new people, and represent the company I work for,” said Price.
Price will go on to complete with other young leaders from around the world for the global GCCA NextGen Award at the Global Cold Chain Expo, taking place June 10-12, 2019 in Chicago, US.
