Hire Awards of Excellence announces 2023 finalists and awards host

Finalists have been announced for this year’s much-anticipated Hire Association Europe Event Hire Association (HAE EHA) Hire Awards of Excellence.

Due to take place on Saturday 22nd April 2023 at Grosvenor House, London, the hire industry’s showpiece event is this year celebrating 15 years since moving to the nation’s capital.

Staged in London since 2008, the awards ceremony celebrates the outstanding achievements of hire and supply companies across the UK’s plant, tool, equipment and event hire industries across 15 different categories. Recognition is also given to individuals who have consistently stood out from the crowd by achieving some of the highest standards in the industry. 

This year’s awards will be hosted by brilliant motivational speaker Scotty Mills, the highest-ranking black officer in the history of the Royal Marines who has led Britain’s Commandos around the world. He shares his lessons of leadership and resilience working as a performance coach in the world of elite sport and business. Scotty has been described by other event organisers as an “amazing, inspiring and polished orator, he was down to earth, humble and a superb individual.”

HAE EHA’s CEO Paul Gaze commented: “We’re delighted to have secured Scotty for the 2023 Hire Awards of Excellence. We’re going to be toasting the very best of the hire industry and Scotty – one at the top of his own profession – will I am sure add to the inspirational line-up on the day. As ever it’s been a massive challenge for the judges to whittle down the shortlist of finalists and it’s a credit to our industry to see such a varied range of businesses on there. I can’t wait for the final results!”
