Presented at a ceremony in London, the Design Engineer of the Year award recognised his strong track record of developing complex products and of leading multi-disciplinary teams. In particular, his work as technical lead on OrganOx’s liver perfusion system, which Team developed. The judging panel were unanimous in selecting Sebastien for the overall Grand Prix – the first time this has happened in BEEA history.
“I’m speechless, which doesn’t happen very often. I was happy to be nominated alongside some really strong engineers but to win it was such a surprise and honour” said Sebastien. “I was so caught up with the excitement of winning that award that I missed my name being called out moments later for the Grand Prix.”
